Spelling them out seems more readable to me, and that perhaps typing
english words seems easier than wierd but familiar acronyms.
This morning I had an idea! You could give the class two names. Like
aliasing or something. Kind of like deprecation but without the warning.
It definitely won't help standards / orthography but it would be
StifKarp k1 => HighPass hp1 => dac; //works!
StifKarp k2 => HPF hp2 => dac; //also works!
