Question about function prefixes

I've received a suggestion to add functionality for a Beaufort cipher[1] to my 
vigenere.el package.  A Beaufort cipher uses almost exactly the same algorithm 
as a Vigenere cipher, with some small changes.  The differences are small 
enough that I can modify vigenere.el to handle a Beaufort cipher with only a 
few lines changed.

Prefixing the Beaufort functions with "vigenere-" seems confusing to users, so 
would it be acceptable to prefix them with "beaufort-"?
