I realize Al asked for this, but I don't think it really adds anything
to the series.

The "full" makes the names longer, but not really any more legible.

So I like 1-4, but am unconvinced about 5 and would prefer that to be
dropped. Sorry for the bikeshedding.

And I like this series much better without the cookie that was
discussed, and just making the hard rule be that they can't nest.

Some architecture may obviously use a cookie internally if they have
some nesting behavior of their own, but it doesn't look like we have
any major reason to expose that as the actual interface.

The only other question is how to synchronize this? I'm ok with it
going through the ppc tree, for example, and just let others build on
that. Maybe using a shared immutable branch with 5.6 as a base?
