I'd imagine in most situations the value would be a constant. And IMHO it 
fails more "gracefully" - you end up with a situations where the end result 
is more code usage.

In the other case you end up with a broken function if the user does not 
realize they need to specify the full version. Imagine if you were using 
non-standard bases and assumed that the itoa function was working and you're 
trying to debug your system...

Warm Regards,
