This is part of the baggage in beginning-of-defun regarding whether
column zero is the beginning of a defun.  Changing this now might be
unwise, so for the moment I've simply revised the docstring of
beginning-of-defun for extra clarity.

I've also changed cc-defs.el to use beginning-of-defun-raw, which is a
more direct and side-effect free test of beginning-of-defun-function,
and added a save-excursion for extra plus safety ;-)

[Also, closing bug#636.]
