Hello,

I found an inconsistency between the manual and implementation: the
Priorities section says that the range of valid priorities can be set
modifying the `org-priority-highest', `org-priority-lowest' and
`org-priority-default' variables. However, in the code the variables
names are `org-highest-priority', `org-lowest-priority' and
`org-default-priority'.

In can submit a patch with a fix. However, in a case like this, should
the code modified to match the documentation, or vice-versa?

Thank you.

Cheers,
Dan

The org-X-priority -> org-priority-X rename happened in v9.4, with
org-X-priority names retained as aliases.  So, it sounds like there are
some leftover bits in the code.

Thanks.

You are absolutely right. This is what you get when you read the manual
for the latest version but look at the code for an old one...

Cheers,

Quickly grepping, a few instances of the old names remain in the code
base, if you're still interested in sending a patch.

I fixed the ones I've found in 370cf49cd and ff5fd323b.  Thanks!
