I've complained about this before, but anyway here it goes again...

Wouldn't it be nice if this kind of module was named consistently? We
now have, on one hand:

     dict, digraph, ets, dets, orddict, queue, string, sofs.

On the other:

     sets, ordsets, lists, gb_sets, gb_trees, proplists.


IMNSHO, the plural "s" in the latter group is ugly and should go away
as soon as possible.


Best wishes,
