It is my brain that was not functioning well. I somehow thought "well,
@{u} is already taken, so we must use "@{pu}". Which of course makes no
sense, unless you are middle-endian. :)

We may want to be cautious about giving up a short-and-sweet
single-letter, though, until the feature has proved itself. We could
also teach upstream_mark and friends to match unambiguous prefixes (so
"@{u}, "@{up}", "@{upst}", etc). That means "@{p}" would work
immediately, but scripts should use "@{publish}" for future-proofing.
