I would like it fixed up to match peoples expectations a little better.
The new versions should DWIM.  If I pass a string to them, assume that they
are to look for a specific component without using a regex,  if I pass a
regex then use that to search for the first hit. That said I would like to
see a new name for the fixed version and depreciate the old version so as
to keep backwards compatibility,  while littering the docs and changelogs
with $c->comp is depreciated use $c->whatever instead -- support will be
gone in Cat 6.0 or whatever.

Does this make sense?
