It makes me wish we had a CouldaWouldaShoulda_CharacterName property that
contains what the name ought to be, and we document this as one that *will*
change any time there is a mistake made in the original character name. We
just make a nice informative property and go through all of our known
mistakes and the maintenance after the initial pass should be minimal....
