To be fair, even in those cases, I think most current uses of a
"-function" suffix in function names are confusing.

A name like "XXX-default-function" _does_ seems good for that usage, as
it explicitly states what it's used for, but just "XXX-function" does
not, and indeed is positively confusing, I think, for the reasons
Andreas mentions.


History, n. An account mostly false, of events mostly unimportant, which are
brought about by rulers mostly knaves, and soldiers mostly fools.
