Revert "Get rid of _t suffix"
In the very least, a change like this requires discussion on the list. The naming convention is goofy and it causes a massive merge problem. Something like this _must_ be presented on the list first so people can provide input and cope with it. This reverts commit 99a0949b720a0936da2052cb9a46db04ffc6db29.

+names are lower_case_with_underscores_ending_with_a_t, like the POSIX
