Does 'backport' sound any good?
Ow, nice and generic, and not an acronym!


Agreed.  I like 'backport', or maybe 'backmerge'.

I think the reason MFC has "wordness" in FreeBSD is because it's so
darned common, because of the branched development model.  In DragonFly
it should be correspondingly less frequent, so the only real trick is
to stop saying it out of habit :)
Well I remember that the first time I encountered MFC and asked what it 
was, they explained it that it was a _backport_ from the head to 
whatever branch it was in the context of the sentence.
So backport definitely hits high on my "uncomplicated word list" :-)
