So, have "they" (whoever "they" are) also requested to change the name of
the city (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arauco,_Chile), and province
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arauco_Province)? B.t.w. "Auraco" seems to be
based on the *Mapudungun* word "auraco" meaning "Chalky Water". Or is the
word somehow not offensive when applied to a city/region? Just asking...
