Sounds fine.  I recall earlier somebody wanting to have a good name
for this thing, and I think foo_gently is *not* it (the name is
about adding a variant that does not die outright to foo that checks
and dies if condition is not right).  

        starts_with(foo, prefix);
        strip_prefix(foo, prefix, &foo);
