There's also something to be said for slightly more explicit names, so that
newcomers to a field, or those who may need a tool on occasion but are not
specialists in a given subtopic, find things more easily. Given how easy
python makes it to shorten package names upon import
import maxentropy as maxent
I'd be +1 on a more descriptive name.
