Change the name of this function, as well as every call site that currently exists in master. I've thought of making it a method on Crab instead of on Sword, but then it would be bifurcateWithSword(), which hardly seems like an improvement.

You can keep sources, configuration and plugins in a separate branch; see e.g. here for details.
