That won't help with non-lispy languages like R or python though, I
don't think.

Perhaps we should reverse the order of what which-function checks? It
currently looks at:

1. which-func-functions
2. imenu--index-alist
3. add-log-current-defun

but we could switch those last two. add-log-current-defun should be
faster than reconstructing imenu--index-alist.
