misleading "Banish Evil" spell name

Maybe Teleport Evil or something else more suitable than using Banish word which means something else in Angband.

Maybe "Scatter Evil". For flavor, and because those evil things are then scattered around dungeon.

IIRC, "banish evil" should change or "teleport other" should become "banishment". Either for flavor or clarity, lets at a minimum have consistency. teleport evil?

Teleport evil is clear, but not cool. "Banish" isn't that clear either, is should be "remove" which is what it does (if we are talking about former genocide). Exterminate is closer to what it really does.

Exterminate! Exterminate! Exterminate!

I have no problem with the current Banishment / Mass Banishment effects; they are banishing monsters from the level, but not killing them.

I do think "Scatter Evil" sounds better than "Banish Evil" though, for that specific spell.
