Serhiy, please resist the urge to engage in API churn.  We've had zero user requests to abandon the current API.  I'm not a fan of the current positional arguments, but changing it isn't really worth it (creating disruption with nearly zero benefit, no new functionality and possibly slowing down the calls in module where people seem to really care about speed).

Bob, would you please weigh-in on this one.  You have the best appreciation for the needs of the established user base.
