I prefer get_foo().  I tend to interpret function names as verbs and "get_" 
clarifies when they are not.  Context can help, but I'd rather have the "get_".

    group()            get_group()
    start()            get_start()
    error()            get_error()
    rank()             get_rank()
    bound()            get_bound()
    output()           get_output()
    rest()             get_rest()
    note()             get_note()
    flag()             get_flag()
    position()         get_position()
    control_points()   get_control_points()
    list()             get_list()
