Is there actually a use for the row-wise definition?  If so, how about
calling it roweig()?  This would be an easy change for the conversion
script to handle or, if it's well documented, for people to make
themselves along with changing import statements, etc.

This could be done with or without a warning call like Fernando suggested.
