> Rack 2.0 is being undertaken, and it's a huuuuge shift.

Will they finally change the name of their middleware components to
conform to English grammar?

("middleware" is a mass noun, like "furniture" and "water", and it
makes my skin crawl every time I read "that's a great middleware" or
the like.)

They've got a great metaphor already baked in -- why not call them
"shelves" or "units" or "pies" or something else that goes on a rack?
