Maybe then a rename is in order to make it a bit more clear so we don't
run into a similar situation in the future? Or worse someone doesn't
commit a code "fix" making a similar mistake as well.

Because I certainly looked at it and the Redhat bug as was about to
patch the Gentoo release because John's conclusions seemed correct to me
as well.
