The type is called ansistring simply for backwards compatibility.

You could start arguing that everything should be intuitive. Take C
for example. What does the && operator tell you about what it does?
Shouldn't it have a intuitive form? But in the end this is how the
language is and this is a useless discussion.

I don't think that all C programmers will rewrite their code anymore
then pascal programmers will rewrite theirs so that you can find a
better name for ansistring.
