In reality, it doesn't really matter, I suppose. I guess it's pretty
much whatever the developer wants to do...if you (or a user) want to put
those in the header, I can see a good side to it: if you decide to
change it, you can change it in raminit.c and then if you revert it, you
can just plug the name in the header file back in. Anyways, for the
moment, the most important thing is making the code work, not about
making it pretty ;)
