I'm being pedantic here and that might not be what Simon desires.

Where's the v1?

My understanding is that, the first patch you sent is not a reroll but
the second patch is reroll 1 (v1)  the third patch reroll 2 (v2) and so

So unless I'm missing something, by your version descriptions 8 rerolls
has been sent to the list/created by 'git format-patch' but 9
refactorisations (initial patch and 8 rerolls (1 + 8 = 9) of the code
has been performed.

That having been said, this should not have any impact on a potential
merging/reviewing of the code!
