Yeah it isn't only about test cases, as the code need small tweaks and
so. In any case, as I said no big deal, just that ongoing patches need
to be rebased against new names but nothing difficult at all. I was just
trying to know how safe to is to proceed with a new rename, because if
the names are not set in stone perhaps it's better to focus on the
latest changes and delay the renames until the spec is stabilized.
