Using the function name as the identifier was an experiment which I
think was a bad idea. I'll roll that code back out.
Before I started using the function name, I used an arbitrary
identifier which was opaque and made debugging difficult. With the
addition of the programmer-supplied identifier, debugging can be made
easier by providing it, and an opaque identifier can be used if none is
