Thank you, I also find this very confusing. However, somebody pointed 
out in one of our calls that users might expect `flang` the be capable 
of generating executables. Hence the delay in renaming (you cannot 
generate code with`flang-new`, yet). Personally, I am quite keen to get 
there sooner rather than later.
