Quick poll for next STITCH version concerning chemical names

I'm conducting a small poll over at FriendFeed about abbreviations of chemical names. If you have a opinion about which abbreviation is better in the following cases, please leave your feedback (either on FriendFeed or in the comments here):

  • 10-formyltetrahydrofolate: "10-formyltetra." or "10-formyl-THF"?
  • acetyl-L-carnitine: "acetyl-L-carni." or "ALCAR"?
  • dihydrotestosterone: "androstanolone" or "dihydrotestost."?
