Well, the day imperative programming and math agree on the semantics
of ``functions'', we might reconsider our position.  In the meanwhile,
just consider that what you name a function and what the GCS call
functions are merely homonyms.  What applies to one has no reason to
apply the other.

PS/  We should also consider renaming all the functions f, f', f'',
and variables are x, y and z, that's common practice in math :)
