In this case, "C programmers think C stdlib function names are
intuitive" may be closer to the mark ;)


P.S. More seriously, these particular functions really are just like
the standard C function of the same name, only operating on
Py_UNICODE* rather than char*, so I can understand documentation being
skipped when they were added. However, they may as well be mentioned
in http://docs.python.org/dev/c-api/unicode.html#plain-py-unicode
