If we were considering this overload at the outset, we would never in a
zillion years consider this name, it would be just another overload of
toArray. The only reason to consider it now is because of the
accidental reality of internal tests that would have to be changed --
which test code that *no user will ever write*. No user code will be
broken. I realize there is a cost to changing the tests, but there's
also a cost -- one that accrues to all the users -- of choosing a
Paul's point is not to let the TCK tail wag the API dog.
