[wp-hackers] Inconsistent Functions?

Good day,

I'm rather new to the WordPress development area, but looking at the API,
I've found it to be slightly inconsistent?

An example of what I'm talking about are these two functions:
* the_time($f) vs get_the_time($f) -- to print vs return a date/time for a
* single_cat_title('prefix', 'display') -- set 'display' to true or false
to either display or return the value

I'm wondering if there's a desire to move 'all' the functions to one or
the other method of doing things?
