I'm inclined to keep this as is - I don't think we should change the
names at least in the stable releases. I'm not sure how far back it
should be patched. The real effect is going to be felt from 9.6, I
think, but arguably for consistency we should change it back to 9.3 or
9.4. Thoughts?

Other things being equal I intend to commit this later today.
