Ok, that's helpful guidance since it saves me from doing a stable fix and
then an attempt to rename/optimize/breakitagain.

I'll just rename it at the same time as the fix.. but now I wonder if that
can potentially mess up other fixes that might retroactively get sent to
stable. Maybe I'm over thinking it. I guess I'll send the fix and then the
rename separately, and maintainers can squash at will.
