Perl_tmps_grow needs a new func call name, suggestions?
Message ID:

 Perl_tmps_grow is marked as public API in embed.fnc, but has no cpan 
grep usage, and it is highly unlikely it is used in darkpan, it is used 
once or twice on CPAN grep through macros, I want to change the meaning 
of a param in Perl_tmps_grow. I've correct all the macros that use it to 
the new meaning. Should I rename Perl_tmps_grow to visbly break darkpan 
code that was using it directly? "_flags" is not appropriate since I 
didn't add a param to the function call, only changed the meaning of the 
existing one. If it should be renamed what should its new name be? 
Perl_tmps_grow_x? Perl_tmps_new_grow? Perl_tmps_grow2?
