Maybe I'm wrong, but this is creating a variable "foo" which is empty.

After this, we can re-declare foo() and it works. For example foo() {
echo bar; }

But trying foo=1 fails (as we created a readonly variable).

Maybe this is more clear to explain what I was stating:

foo1 () { echo foo1; }
readonly -f foo1
readonly foo2
readonly -pf
