[postgis-devel] ST_Area, ST_Area2D

Can I scrap ST_Area2D from docs and just replace with ST_Area? or is
ST_Area2D really the preferred name?  They both map to
LWGEOM_area_polygon, but 
the docs list the ST_Area2D one which seems a bit more verbose and

Both IBM and ESRI on quick search just call it ST_Area

and Esri webhelp.esri.com/arcgisserver/9.3/java/geodatabases/st_area.htm
