[OT warning.]

The point is that they're all known enough to be easy to find now.
Natural language is a strange fuzzy thing, and there's a good reason
that google is doing much better than grep (if there was a web grep
thing) -- you can see it exactly in how easy it is to find these
language despite the difficulty you're talking about.  (And the fact
that people have gotten used to the natural-language-is-fuzzy, there's
no danger of losing this functionality.)
