Sorry for that. I had Hyrum's post in mind and searched
for affected files. Then I realized that the majority were
"mine" and the others were basic / stable ones. Since
1.7 has had a number of bugfix releases already, the
probability for urgent backports should be relatively low.

So, I went for the rename. If that causes backport problems,
feel free to ask me to do the merge.
