Other than removing cruft, nope, I don't see any ...
In any case, this is an exported symbol so maybe it's not a good idea to
mess with it. OTOH I checked PL/R and PL/php and neither uses it, so
this may not be a problem at all.
FWIW, we remove the second argument in textToQualifiedNameList() two
years ago so i think this is just finishing what we already started,
"Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to
build bigger and better idiot-proof programs and the universe trying
to produce bigger and better idiots.
So far, the universe is winning."
