[Bf-committers] DNA -> RNA -> UI names

Hi all,

When checking on a softbody bug report I noticed that some properties  
even use three names now. The name for C code in DNA got changed in  
RNA definition but this gets ignored in the UI, which uses another  
name again.

By definition RNA stores a UI name, which should be used as such in  
the UI too.
If RNA ui names are wrong, these have to be fixed there, not with  
custom script names!


DNA: aeroedge
RNA API: aero
RNA UI: "Aero"
Py UI: "Factor"

Nice idea for a christmas holiday fixing round :)
At least: let all maintainers check of RNA UI names are correct? Then  
I can find a volunteer to kick out (most of) the custom UI names.
