I also like contributor.

This verifies my impression that Pari is now in the same category as 
Mathematica and Maple as far as frequency of use.  If there are going 
to be any languages with special lines for that kind of program, it 
seems to me that Pari ought to be one of them.

If anything, I think Pari is probably now the most used.  People have 
been adding Maple and Mma programs to the database considerably longer 
than Pari programs, yet Pari has caught up in total number of programs.

I like "contributor".


An exhaustive search of the database %p, %t, and %o lines about a year
ago showed that about 30% of the programs were in each of Mathematica,
Maple, and Pari with no other programs accounting for more than 2%.  I
was surprised by the evenness of the split.
