I wonder if we should add to the docstring of `function' that when the
argument is a symbol, several checks are performed: it is checked
whether the function will be defined at run-time and whether the
function is obsolete, for example.

The current docstring doesn't suggest that function-quoting symbols has
any advantages, but these warnings are also useful for users' init
files, people that are not always informed what "argument is byte
compiled" implies.

Ok, I just did that in 84a3da15e9 and close the report - thanks for your
assistance (will probably not be the last time I need help with

BTW, what I found a bit inconsistent in that manual node was that
sometimes the verb and the noun are sometimes called
"byte-compile"/"byte-compiler" (with hyphen) and sometimes "byte
compile"/"byte compiler" (without).  Dunno if it matters and that should
be more consistent.
