So the point here is that I don't want major-mode to be aware of what
I might have set the default value of `eldoc-documentation-function' to
(and work even if I change it at any point).

This is also why I made `eldoc-documentation-function' into a defcustom
so user can customise the default value regardless of what major-mode is

I first tried doing it with `eldoc-mode' but the result didn't seem
clean or working correctly when major mode had its own eldoc function
