OK, so they are consistent, which is good.

OK.  As I said, if the retitling is the only change, then doing so
as a follow-up to the existing 9-patch series would be easier to
review.  If there are other changes needed, a reroll of the full set
is probably better.

Wrong assumption ;-)  We want the resulting code to be consistent.

I thought they both mean "Unmerged"; that is why I thought seeing a
lowercase there was very strange.
