Is this really such a good idea? We shipped at least two upstream
versions with this user friendly names default. Changing this causes
problems and at least debian installer uses this during the installation
phase.
Wouldn't it be nicer to make the user_friendly_names_prefix configurable
so people can choose mpath, npath, mp or whatever they want leaving
mpath as the default? I can cook up a patch in that case.
