Actually it started to become nuisance to deal with conflicts among
as/check-ignore and the attr/dir/wildmatch series, and I've been
wondering if it makes sense to eject all of these out of 'next' (as
they won't advance beyond 'next' until the next release anyway).

So please go ahead and reroll the whole thing if you think the end
result would be a history with better organization.
