 Ack; calling relays "he" is a bit silly.  And while we once had our entire
 HS protocol described in terms of "Alice" and "Bob", we haven't really
 done that for about a decade, and it *sure* doesn't belong in the log
 messages.  Merged.

 (We don't do changes files for comments-only changes.)

 Relay operators and users remain free to assign whatever gender they like
 to their computers and the software they are running.

 (And please nobody give me any crap about "they" in the singular or I'll
 get out my Chaucer.)
