Yeah; the conversion from non ST_ prefix to ST_ prefix functions was not
a particularly well thought-out one.
In terms of determining ISO/MM vs. PostGIS-only functions, our current
philosophy is to add a marker in the documentation for
standards-compliant methods, e.g.
Mark Cave-Ayland - Senior Technical Architect
PostgreSQL - PostGIS
Sirius Corporation plc - control through freedom
