What is new, however, is that having two different APIs doesn't make any
sense here.

If you don't object to unite the two APIs in master, I'm ok with that
decision.  However, I then would like to change the NEWS entry in the
release branch so that it doesn't mention the new foo-let* names,
because these will be only synonyms for foo-let in subsequent releases,
and letting NEWS introduce them now as something different would only
cause confusion.
