Naming of NATSymmetricUDPFirewall #33

It took me a while to understand that NATSymmetricUDPFirewall actually means Symmetric UDP Firewall without any actual NAT being involved (as is also shown in the RFC and the flow chart in ).

I wonder whether this constant should be renamed / aliased to SymmetricUDPFirewall to better clarify that this is very different from NATSymmetric ?

@xiang90 In principle yes, but there are two problems:

  • I don't know if there should be an alias (for a while?) to not break API compatibilitiy with other users (e.g. syncthing) hard.
  • I basically only know Go well enough to read it, so I would only be able to do a search / replace (but well, that's really sufficient here I think 😉 ).
