 No any that I am aware of. The problem is not so much to overwrite the
 input, but the lack of common guidelines on this point.

 I agree that changing the code is not difficult, but it changes semantics,
 and needs to be changed for all functions. Instead of changing a few
 functions at random, I prefer a global approach: what is the best choice,
 and stick with it for all functions. I prefer not to change the behaviour
 now, and change all the function which should see their behaviour changed
 at once.
