I see it a bit differently. The first question is "should we change
the LLVM naming conventions". I view the plan for conversion as
essential to answering this question - IMHO if we're going to live
with mixed styles for years (which would be the case if there were no
concerted conversion effort) then the advantages of changing naming
convention are outweighed by the disadvantages by quite some way. So
while I appreciate the desire to separate concerns, I find it
difficult to do so in this case.
