There is also a new version of my 86 patch long series to replace
prefixcmp() with starts_with() that I am ready to send, but I hesitate

I can put it somewhere like GitHub where people can see everything and
perhaps send only a few patches to the list, including the first and

@Junio, how would you like me to proceed?
