Would renaming them be acceptable, so long as the old names are kept as aliases 
for backward compatibility? I don't think the names ⌜global-value⌝, 
⌜setq-global⌝, and ⌜set-global⌝ would cause any confusion with any other 
concepts in Emacs, and they're unlikely to conflict with anybody's custom code.
