We should keep it. The rule only applies to the prefixes for field
names within records/structs. Those prefixes exist because in ancient
pre-ISO versions of C, field names were not scoped to the struct in
which they were defined. There is no reason to have them in C any more
except backward compatibility, and absolutely no reason to use them in
any language other than C.
