[postgis-users] usage of truly_inside()

I need to query line segments for containment inside polygons. I have 
been using truly_inside(), but what I really need is a function 
completely_inside() i.e. ALL the objects in geom1 are inside geom2. 
Wouldn't truly_inside() be better named partially_inside() or 
overlaps() or something? Should I adapt truly_inside() to do this, or 
is there an easier way?
