Thank you for your comments. I also looked at the commit history.
stringToQNL is added after textToQNL as a static function originally,
but this is now public and reffered from other modules, too. So, I
propose to mote this from regproc.c to verlena.c and rewrite textToQNL
to call stringToQNL. This is just for reducing redundancy of the code.
Attached is the updated patch.

I also fixed to free rawname in the texttoQNL.
