Not really. My comment was (or at least, intended to be, but my
English perhaps got in the middle) that I thought that using NEWNAME
was not the result of copy&paste, but a deliberate decision. But I
didn't really express any preference on my own.

I'm partial to LINKNAME. I find it much more descriptive and to the
point that NEWNAME.

Fixing it to LINKNAME is just adjusting the docstring and one info
file, so it shouldn't be a problem. I thought documentation fixes and
typos are allowed during the pretest? Or do you really prefer even
that change to go to the master?
