You probably mean c-muting and c-mute (the cs-xxx variants don't
exist)...? :) Anyways, c-muting is the correct one, i.e. docs are
right but code wrong. I've now committed the following to CVS:
- changed: eiam - all instances of 'c-mute' in code and docs
changed to 'c-muting', although now officially
deprecated, 'c-mute' will continue to work as
an alias to 'c-muting'
This should not break any old code.

Unfortunately only toggling functions are currently offered. So you need
to maintain the (un)muted status yourself.
