I thought prefixing "_" was for signaling "this is an implementation
detail and you probably don't want to call it unless you know what
you're doing", not "here's a new version that does a new thing".

I'll fix it.

I didn't want to break modules unnecessarily. Declaring the function
inline and also exporting it gives us an efficiency win while avoiding
an ABI break, right?

Yep.
