Okay.

Usually, I am resistant to API/ABI changes - but actually in this case,
I think we can do this even *now* without breaking the ABI (IIUC, we can
use alias to keep around the old 'functions' - even structures shouldn't
have any change).  The API, we can carry over the existing stuff, and
flag it in documentation as deprecated.
