All you've accomplished now is to increase the amount of guessing I have
to do while debugging.  You missed "aplog_error" for example.  Yes all
this could be solved by improving gdb to do the guessing for me... but
that hasn't happened yet.

This sort of hodge-podge naming things apapi_ or ap_ or os_ or whatever_
is pointless.  If we're not going to do it across the board (changing the
API completely) then there's little sense in doing one or two cases. Right
now I don't care if the API changes names completely, but I am annoyed by
hodge-podge naming changes.  I just figured this was a 2.0 issue.
