Avoid abbreviations

Avoid abbreviations whenever possible, especially ad hoc ones. If you use commonly or easily understood abbreviations, use them consistently. Inconsistent abbreviations make it difficult to remember the correct name of a function or variable, as for example, using VisibleRegion some places and VisRgn others. Remember, code is read many more times than it is written: long, readable names will better stand the test of time.
