Whatever. That is a separate discussion/debate; I was merely trying to
provide options within the versioning guidelines.

For the above case, the function implementation can be renamed to
apr_dbd_entry_get(), then a new function can be added, named
apr_dbd_get_entry, which simply calls the other with its params.
Update the header to rename the function, and add a new entry for the
old with a @deprecated remark.

Don't try to use #define here tho. Some users may want/need the func
address, so you can't use macros. Also, as Bill points out, you can't
convert the old func to a macro.
