changing terminology (was: overview paper co-author invitation)

Here we go again... did you know that in English flog means "to beat with a rod or whip"? Though, slog means "to tramp heavily", so it doesn't matter...

Also, I think it would increase confusion, since Mathematica's conventions would be FactorialFLog (note the uppercase L), and so a lowercase l would cause people typing the name to get lots of spelling errors.
