That's why I was never a real fan of chip->names...

IMO a "good" solution in this space needs to accept that
those names are not going to be globally unique ... but
that they'll be unique within some context, of necessity.

If Greg doesn't want to see those names under classes,
so be it ... but where should they then appear?
