Script names could be improved


I would like to propose renaming the user script names from: fsharpc, fhsarpi, fsharpi+ to fsc, fsi and fsix (or fsi+ or fsx).
My reasoning:
  • less typing
  • better consistency with F# itself as well as other .Net tools (csc, mcs, gmcs)
  • except for fsix, those are the names that have been used in a number of guides on how to use fsharp in Mono, so some people will be used to them
  • it just sounds better

The problem is that Scala already uses the name "fsc" (Fast Scala Compiler). For consistency, we decided to rename also fsi into fsharpi.
