[Bug 14646] New: <track> Don't use one-letter settings. They are non-intuitive and hard to remember. It makes little sense to use a single letter for the setting but then a sensible string for the value. Please use "align" instead of "A", etc.

           Summary: <track> Don't use one-letter settings. They are
                    non-intuitive and hard to remember. It makes little
                    sense to use a single letter for the setting but then
                    a sensible string for the value. Please use "align"
                    instead of "A", etc.
