Subject: EPICS vs. EPICS Base

Hello!

It seems to me that the terms "EPICS" and "EPICS Base" are often used
interchangeably, yet they're not the same thing.  Are the following
definitions correct?

  EPICS: A specification of control system definitions and protocols.

  EPICS Base: A C/C++ implementation of the EPICS specification.

If correct, then I'm OK with keeping the name EPICS Base, but I wonder
if a better name might be EPICS-C++?  Then, if desired, you could
have other implementations of the EPICS specification: EPICS-Java,
EPICS-Perl, EPICS-Python, EPICS-Ruby, etc.

Thoughts?

Lewis
