Bruce didn't like it
(http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2005-06/msg01410.php), and
you seemed to object as well

Personally I'm beyond caring much now as the amount of time spent trying
to name these simple functions is wildly disproportionate the the effort
take to actually code them. I think we just need to agree there is no
perfect name and rely on the comments and docs to guide people. I think
the current names work OK, and Bruce and Dawid at least agree!

Regards, Dave.
