Yes, thanks.  I found that variable by grepping all the sources.  To get
access to it, you've got to do M-: (require uniquify), which is surely
something a "mere" user shouldn't have to do.  There also seems to be
something about it in menu-bar.el, but I haven't quite figured out what.

It just seems very, very strange.
