Re: FOO vs FO
The Jargon File mentions quz, qaz and qoz as placeholders (IIRC) but i've never seen them used extensively.
Just to add to the discussion, the french code has some particularity (as we often like to).
Essentially, the base is not "foobar", but "toto", wich is a first name for child used in jokes, and usually a very annoying and dumb child. Any french know some "histoires de toto" ("toto stories").
Since one word is never enough, you get a lot of derivative : "tata", "tutu", "titi", etc. which makes lines like :
<xsl:with-param name="tata" select="2"/>
Which makes things much more readable :-)
Just to add some more euros...
