To avoid namespace conflicts (such as this), and possible shadowing issues,
function parameter names in prototypes should either be omitted (my personal
preference) or prefixed with N number of underscores (I think two is what I
usually see).  Lying about the names is wrong, and a good linter or even
compiler will complain that parameter names aren't consistent in prototype
and declaration :)
