The usual way for renaming a function in Emacs is to mark it as
deprecated and make it an alias for the new name, and after a few more
Emacs releases remove it altogether. So if you want to stay compatible
with older Emacsen, simply continue to use `object-set-name-string' for
the time being. You will get a warning on byte-compilation, but just
ignore it (or turn off the deprecation warning if it bothers you too
