I'm happy to make these changes--they seem sane to me.  NOTE that most
patches don't actually have a PREFIX but I purposely added one to this
patch to test it.  :-)  The next version will likely have a "version"
but no prefix, so with your suggestion I'll have:


I may add a "v" before the 2 in the next version also.  I was going to
do that but then I forgot to before I posted.  :-P  Thus:


If I post v2 as an RFC also, it would be:


For now I'll wait a few days before posting a v2 in case anyone wants
to provide additional feedback (or tell me that I'm a terrible person
for liking Change-Ids).
