It is not too big a deal, but we prefer to hear our story told in a
consistent voice.  We'd phrase often the above as if giving an order
to the code base to "become like so", i.e.

	Make X, Y, and Z accessible outside sequencer.c; rename A to
	B and prefix its values by doing C to avoid namespace

You added an excuse for being sloppy in the naming to the log
message; the log message is an important and integral part of the
patch, so please do not label an update like this as unchanged.

"eventually" is fine, but that means we cannot split the early parts
of the topic, once they are polished well enough, into a separate
bit and have that graduate earlier than the remainder of the topic
until that "moved and become static again" happens, which may be a
bit unfortunate.  Let's make sure we can get to that "eventually"
step soon.
