That's not very nice, is it? Regardless of whether it's built-in,
implemented in C, it should behave as a proper lisp symbol. I don't
see why built-in functions should have to call the internal
implementation of self-insert-command directly rather than invoking
the function in the symbol's function slot.

Isn't it a bug?

I mean if you know ways other than advising to change the definition
of self-insert-command transpararently then I'm all ears.
