Try (require 'uniquify).

I can't find any mention of this bundled package in the Emacs manual,
however.  Shouldn't it be referenced in the Visiting [Files] node, and
maybe the [Using Multiple] Buffers node as well?

Perhaps the Mode Line or Optional Mode Line [Features] info nodes should
mention the buffer-mode-format variable (which isn't documented in the
Emacs manual) or even reference the Mode Line Data node in the Emacs Lisp
