Just as an aside, I'm certain that I wrote the original version of that code. It was originally called "mangleNameOf", and was published on the ng and in DDL project on dsource. Somebody copied it verbatim and republished it another dsource project with my name removed and most of the comments stripped out, but with the function names unchanged. I think this code is based on that. This code still doesn't include the comments explaining why it works, and it really needs to. It took a lot of creativity to come up with, it's really not obvious.
