    Just don't rename try_to_freeze() to whatever... make it do whatever
    you need, but don't change the name so that we don't have to fix it at
    1000 places...

    Or introduce new name, but keep try_to_freeze in, just calling "new"
    function, so all 1000 usews don't have to be changed at the same time.
