Ugh, I read the commits wrong.  His most recent changes are *not* just
variable-name changes, but they're less significant than I thought.
(They make an omitted acceptCallback use the accept algorithm, so that
calling ".then(alert)" and ".then().then(alert)" would have the same
behavior on nested promises.)

While I clear that up (since the naming and the behavior are not
inconsistent, which is extremely confusing), can you comment on the
rest of my message?
