> Is the "*" a convention of some kind that I should be aware of?

Sort of.  Some functions that are similar to other functions use
the same base name as the latter, but with a `*' suffix.  This is
more prominent in some lisps.

For example, Common Lisp has `do' and `do*'.  `do*' is to `do' as
`let*' is to `let': the bindings of the `*' versions are evaluated
