Description Renamed the concept of 'private names' to 'nicknames' (with the 'private name' based syntaxes supported as aliases) at the interface level (it's still 'private names' internally, but no matter).
Reason It seemed sensible, and it actually somewhat brings up full circle, since circa 1993 we had a 'nickname' mechanism that wound up getting torn out because it didn't work very well (possibly at all).
Result Shorter and more common/intuitive name for the concept.
Version predates automated version tracking
