I want to make names of major modes shorter. No longer than three characters. Is there any packages that do something like that?
It's better to shorten mode names in automatic fashion, so one doesn't need to constantly manage this thing manually. I'm ready to consider any principle of shortening. Most trivial would be to use abbreviations, so
emacs-lisp-mode would become
el, for example.
interactive-haskell-mode would become
ih. Not bad at all for a start.
I also like Unicode characters like Greek letters and other stuff to be mode names, currently I use sort of hack to “rename” modes, but maybe there is full featured package to do it?
Clarification: the question is about mode names (values of variable
mode-name usually), they are displayed in mode line. I want to make major mode “lighters” shorter.
