Given their description, what about renaming:
  • simplify function into simplify_(by_)distance
  • simplify_vw function into simplify_(by_)area. Actually this is the one that bothers me: I wonder if adding "by area" wouldn't be more meaningful and remembered by user than vw (Viswalingam-Whyatt?).

(I set it as a bug report though it's not, but not feel that it's also a feature request)
