Just "Revise" would be ok with me, but I wanted to draw more of a  
distinction from "Commit with Changes". "Revise and Repost" maybe,  
since we usually speak of "posting" a patch, rather than "submitting"  
it? Or just "Post a New Patch".

Anyway, to make any changes like this, we'll have to work around some  
of the technical limitations of bugzilla. A number of us have  
experience hacking bugzilla, so this is totally feasible. If there  
were an open source bug tracker that met our needs much better, to the  
point that transition costs would be lower than hacking bugzilla, then  
we could consider it. But that depends on having a concrete  
alternative that is actually better.
