Slightly changing an old saying about programming languages (from Jon
Fairbarin on a Haskell mailing list? Can't remember...): "A good API
doesn't make it easy to write correct code, it makes it hard to write
incorrect code." Because of this and the arguably poor names, a -1 for this
proposal from my side.
