even after about 400 custom wordpress instalation i always got problem remembering the proper name of many functions, if they are returning the content or echoing it.

Most of the functions got get_something() and the_something() but some functions got get_the_something() (e.g. get_the_post_thumbnail) and some got the_something(echo=false) or something(echo=true) etc.

It would be nice if we would consolidate the naming convention (IMO get_ and the_ would be the best) and make current functions obsolete.
