I just googled around and "ATS" collides with the name of a programming
language <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATS_%28programming_language%29>
(and a lot <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATS> of completely unrelated
stuff, off course), but that is unlikely to cause confusion, so it's
fine with me, too.
