I used to like to tweak computer languages into something more tasteful for me. I guess that would be concomplanging. In many cases it was just a matter of relexing the reserved words, but I did sometimes go as far as finding the word table in memory and altering it so the relex was actually functional. Not unlike all those tweaks for Apple DOS that allowed the renaming of DOS commands to something else.
