Done.... and it doesn't change my opinion. I think it would be
VERY beneficial to have API functions have their own unique
prefix. Instead, we're just going to lump everything into
one prefix which sure protects againsts namespace collisions, but
does nothing to characterize the functions themselves...

Fine... I'll just wait a coupla weeks and then retroactivity veto that
and we'll be back at square one.

In any case, I'm tired of all this squabbling... All I'm trying to
do is to try to create some logic and some consistancy in the
namespace, and now is the time to do it. Whatever... I guess the only
way to cram stuff down people's throat is to gripe, complain, moan, groan
and say that something "sucks" and "if I gotta do it that way I'm
gonna puke" 

Do whatever the f*ck you want. It's obvious that no matter how much
bullshit we feed the press, we are NOT "all equal" instead, some of
us are more equaler than others.
