This is the good reason to keep function names different.

This is the reason you make your module name different. It is not

Let me reiterate my agreement with this -- Miles Bader and I mentioned this 3 weeks ago but it only seems to have gotten some momentum now.

Let's have a bigger chorus of opinions on this novelty and see which side is louder :-) Speak up!

Even if two libraries are a teeny bit different, sharing a set of names is no biggie. We're not likely to get confused once we pick one to use, either statically or dynamically. If we want to use both at the same time, then we'd better know what we are doing eh...
