I di find the following topic in stack overflow: Layouting comment and
feeds in one view in android
<https://stackoverflow.com/questions/45430528/layouting-comment-and-feeds-in-one-view-in-android>
If I continue the hunt, I might find more instances where it's used. And if
I do start to find additional indicators that "Layouting" is being adopted
as a word for my current audience, I will allow it.

And I do have confidence that my taking my job seriously will eventually be
seen in a positive light.:-)

Over time, our group will develop a style guide.
