The whole discussion about also deprecating the other one started only
because of improving naming:
it is also a nice thing to pursue but fails the cost-benefit analysis.
In my mind, making two new names, both unambiguous, gives a greater
benefit (a clearer final state) without that much extra cost (more
people will have to change their code, but fewer will be confused about
whether they need to or not).
All in all, I think neither not doing anything, nor deprecating the
whole function is a good choice.
The more I think about it, the more I'm leaning towards not doing
anything being the best choice. The benefit seems small, and the cost high.
