    I spent sometime rethinking about this.  What the current table advice
    does to those original commands (functions) is to set up a special
    environment (set buffer to a cell cache buffer, etc.) then to let the
    original function (unmodified) do its work and finally to clean up
    (filling paragraph, restore current buffer, etc.)

Is the cache buffer set up in the same way for all these functions?
What about the followup processing--is it the same for all these

If so, perhaps the right solution is with a general "cache buffer"
feature that would apply to all commands, or to some broad range of
commands.  This way, the individual commands would not have hooks,
or wrappers, or advice, or anything similar.  The feature would
work for all commands without knowing a list of them.

That is the kind of solution I would like to find.
