#1742: suggested naming convention for Cactus thorn files

 urrently the user guide
 suggests prefixing file names with the thorn name, ie.


 I was wondering what the rationale behind this is. There is no chance of
 conflicts during the build since each thorn is build in a subdirectory
 of its own. The extra prefix makes all filenames longer without adding
 anything to the functionality it seems to me.

 In order to shorten the filenames and unclutter directory listings I
 would like remove the recommendation from the user guide.
