A heated argument seems to be developing, which IMHO makes no sense when we
are discussing a tiny corner of the language. Yes, function names should be
consistent, however because the current namespace is such a mess it is
impossibly to argue the toss on this issue because all we can do is make the
function name compatible with one (or more) of a range of inconsistent
'standards' throughout the language.

It HAS to be time for a big tidy up, as it is clearly impossible to 'do the
right thing' under current circumstances.
