Yes I second this motion. The components should be named as simply as
possible. Users are going to be the ones filing the reports and
whoever is doing triage is going to have to move it around if its in
the wrong area. Abstract names like DirectX, Sound, Graphics,
Installers and Printing are a much better idea than dllnames. Hell I
don't even know what shdocvw does really and when an application
starts spewing FIXME messages that have random dllnames in them we are
just going to get bad bug reports. Its much better to have abstract
categories that match behavioral issues.
