Using * in names

Of course, your proposal re: using * wouldn't have helped in the case of
CATCH and THROW, which were stable a lot longer than two years.  Also
lots of losers are replaced by losers which are replaced by losers....
Maybe everything should start out with 150 *'s, and once a month, if
it hasn't been changed incompatibily, a * is removed from the name?
Then when a name runs out of stars, it is considered to have tenure.
CAR, CDR, and CONS have tenure, for example.  (Remember LSUBR CONS?)
