Why is that unlikely? What's wrong with adding a more sensible alias,
optionally declaring the old name obsolete? Standard procedure, it's
done every now and then.
The question is whether the maintainers acknowledge the problem or not
-- I for one don't use the function even though I've known about it for
some time, but I know people who do use it, and the docstring suggests
general usefulness. One more argument for "it's a lousy name".
