Of those two, I'd pick the latter. I notice that Chez does the same:
An alternative would be to pick some delimiter that's less ambiguous
than "-" in this context, e.g. FX:QUOTIENT. In that case, names like
FX+ would still omit the delimiter, because they don't need the same
sort of separation between parts of their name.
