Redis does a Python, crushes 'offensive' master, slave code terms

Haven’t paid enough attention to this severe atmospheric disturbance in a warm water individual consumption container, but...

Is the line being drawn at _not_ breaking user code? Possibly by not touching API or by aliasing master/slave to umbrellas and whatever? I get the sense, from the blurb about APIs, that this is mostly doc-level, but...

Also, whatever the motivation for this, it would be best to put determination of adequate, preferably industry-wide, replacements as a much-preferred prereq. Perhaps ‘subordinate’ for ‘slave’?

Otherwise we’ll end up w stupidly unclear euphemisms up the wazoo. Umbrellas indeed.
