That's interesting idea and that would be probably the easiest  
approach in case changing the names in the "affected" machines'  
subdirectories would create problems outside of them.

Yes, and I just checked also in German version of the PRG ("Alles über  
den C64" - ISBN 3-89090-379-7) them to be the same, even if this  
particular edition is much newer than the first edition and contains  
even GEOS supplement. As mentioned here it seems that the naming was  
changed for the newer machines for some reason (if any real one) but I  
never saw those on the 64 until few days ago.
