I hadn't known of uniquify, but after some experimentation it seems not
to offer everything I'd like.  In particular, I want a trailing
component-x.y.z on the buffer name even when I'm not already visiting
the same file in a different directory.  uniquify only steps in when
there's a name conflict.

I wrote a short find-file hook to fix the buffer name, so it's not that
big a deal.
