Okay, so changed functions to ts_setweight, ts_delete, ts_unnest, ts_filter.
Somehow, I don't think you read what I wrote.

Renaming the pre-existing setweight() function to ts_setweight() is
not going to happen; it's been like that for half a dozen years now.
It would make no sense to call the new variant ts_setweight() while
keeping setweight() for the existing function, either.
Oh, I accidentally renamed one of the old functions, my mistake.

I also don't see that much point in ts_unnest(), since unnest()
in our implementation is a function not a keyword.  I don't have
a strong opinion about that one, though.
Just to keep some level of uniformity in function names. But also i’m
not insisting.

Also, I'd supposed that we'd rename to tsvector_something, since
the same patch also introduced tsvector_to_array() and
array_to_tsvector().  What's the motivation for using ts_ as the

I've not been involved in doing any tsvector stuff, nor likely to in the near future - but if i was, I think I'd find simpler to get into if tsvector specific functions followed a common pattern of naming, like Stas is suggesting.
