I can understand that... recently in a major API change in Pika I did
a global s/cports/ports/ and unfortunately a few files had cports in
the tagline and with all the modified files I missed the D and A lines
in tla changes.  However, the next patch I changed them back which
resulted in another D/A pair, but at least once I star-merged them
into my integration branch the little patch incident became a mere
artifact of changelog history.
