It started growing on me, once I decided that we could force people to 
pronounce "person/age" aloud and in their heads as "person with age", so 
that they wouldn't forget or get confused.

And it's arguably also consistent with how I tend to use "/" in 
procedure names.

After a cooling-off period, I'm probably going to do names this way in 
my new library.
