I'm assuming that we are talking about the tree browser on the left
hand side here.

What Ptolemy has now
    SDF Director
    CT Director

Edward discussed this at group lunch and pointed out that if we 
edited $PTII/ptolemy/configs/basicDirectors.xml and change the name
"SDF Director" to "SDF", then when the user drags the SDF icon into
a graph viewer the green box is labeled "SDF".  We would rather
the green box be labeled "SDF Director".  

I see the point of having the tree widget on the left avoid redundancy,
but I prefer having the green box have the complete name.

Perhaps one way to implement this would be to add a shortName parameter
that would be used in the tree widget if it was present?
