OK, I think i'm finally done with my uniquify hacking and there's
two things still left for me to do:

- Revert the patch that made Gnus' "(un)sent" buffers unmanaged.  The new
  code should handle those buffers correctly: either they'll be unmanaged
  anyway (if Gnus never calls either `create-file-buffer' on them or
  `rename-buffer' with a non-nil `unique' argument) or they'll be managed
  but uniquify will still preserve their name.  I.e. if the buffer-file-name
  is ~/foo/drafts/7 and the buffer-name was "*unsent bar*", uniquify
  will at worst use a buffer-name of the form "*unsent bar*|foo/drafts"

- Change the default of uniquify-after-kill-buffer-p to t (we could
  also change its name, but I don't care enough to do it myself).
  The docstring of uniquify-after-kill-buffer-p used to say that it's
  a dangerous feature because it can change buffer names behind packages'
  backs and that if packages remember their buffers by name (rather
  than directly by buffer) there can be trouble.
  I removed that text because the text applies to the whole of uniquify
  rather than just to uniquify-after-kill-buffer-p.  OTOH, it is true
  that uniquify-after-kill-buffer-p made the problem slightly worse because
  it caused all buffer-names to be reconsidered after a kill-buffer,
  including buffers which had never been uniquified before.  This has
  now been fixed, so I think we can safely change the default.
