Probably the first version was "DRAW", and Mechner incremented the last letter with each version.
Don't know why, but I find that pretty funny. Wonder what he'd have named the version after DRAZ, if there was one? Looped around to DRAA? Incremented by a letter to DRAZA?

This is the first time I've ever downloaded this archive from PoPUW, and out of sheer curiosity was going through the various files inside till I came to PRINCE.FAQ. Can't tell you how increasingly confused quickly skimming through this file made me, and my brain almost melted when I finally came to Q22, namely "Is Prince bi/homosexual?". WTF?! Do some people really think he's going through all those trials because he likes Jaffar instead of the Princess? Have I been playing these games wrong all these years? Is this an insidious attempt to ruin my happy childhood memories? Does this conspiracy extend to other games like Mario too? (Come to think of it, Dastan was quite 'friendly' with the Joker on top of Brokeback Mountain. Hmm...)
Fortunately before my whole world collapsed I finally figured out that it was a FAQ not for PoP but for ! Wow. (Phew!) Either Jalal has a really weird sense of humor or he blindly included anything that said "Prince" in the title.
