Thanks.  I'll include the obsolete-alias setup with some docstring fixes
that version.el meeded anyway.

The theme of all my recent commits is fixing places in the tree where code
or documentation knew the VCS in use is Bazaar but didn't actually need 
to know that. In most cases simply referring to 'the repository' is 
sufficient, and in fact improves the documentation.

The goal, of course, is to get to where plugging in git is a very small
and well-isolated change.  But these cleanups would be good in themselves for
their information-hiding effects even if no change were planned.

The renaming of that variable is the most intrusive change I'll have
to make to get this part of the job done.  Most of the others are
