How important is it for us to keep the function names the same as before in the PL/SQL packages when porting to 9i.

One easy and maybe a good thing to do, is to rename the functions which use reserved words for names. Example: rename delete to delete_proc etc. But this would mean extra work for existing sites to upgrade any custom code.
In the long run it is probably better to avoid using reserved words.

So, what say we rename them functions, and provide our sed or perl scripts (which I will make anyway to help in porting) to help people upgrade their custom code if they have any.

any comments?
