Use specific names

In general, make names specific rather than generic. For example, the type for Taligent's graphics coordinates was once called Number; out of context, this is very hard to figure out and likely to accidentally conflict with identifiers from other header files. The new type, GCoordinate, is far more descriptive. Use generic names only when there is true generality, such as TSetOf.
