It's a remnant of trying to merge all the packages (done before the idea 
to have separate compatibility layers emerged).

This one in particular is done because resize is used in this way at 
least once in the library code and so has a permanance it otherwise 
would not have enjoyed.

I'm not sure we can change it now.  At least not until 1.1
