This is a public service announcement. If you plan to write a build tool, please note that there is a rapidly developing shortage of prefix letters. As of this writing, the following names are already taken:
That leaves only ‘a’, ‘l’ and ‘s’ in the Basic Latin alphabet.
Our advance knowledge of upcoming projects suggests that letter exhaustion could occur as soon as February 2012. We are attempting to move to a Unicode-based naming system to provide room for expansion, permitting names like €make, ☮make, and ♥make. In the mean time, we advise attempting greater naming creativity.
