in reply to Frivolous function names

It always cracks me up when Java programmers talk about calling the "passivate" method on EJBs. In my own code, I once did things like name a boolean $jeff_is_a_swell_guy, which was false until Jeff fixed the bug that I was working around. But for function names, everyone knows there's no need to have more than one: do_it()
