It has finally been renamed to shallowtrans. I will update the CHANGES

We try to use more explicit name for functions and documented them.
gtrans_i was not documented, but shallowtrans is:

\fun{GEN}{shallowtrans}{GEN x} returns the transpose of $x$,
\emph{without} copying its components, i.~e.,~it returns a \kbd{GEN}
whose components are (physically) the components of $x$. This is the
internal function underlying \tet{gtrans}.
