Common Init Method Name

Marco Arment asks what to name a method that factors out shared code, so it can be called from multiple initializers. The results seem to indicate that there is no agreed upon standard. Apple seems to use -commonInit, but when subclasses are involved it’s probably better to use a name like -commonInitForClass. I lean toward -setUpClass, which is shorter and more verby.
