If this variable is nil then `find-function' searches `load-path' by

Would be usable except that setting it up stops the tracking of
further load-path changes, and it requires converting _all_
corresponding directories in the current load-path to their respective
source directory.  This sort of conversion would then more or less
need to be done by defadvice to find-function, using a list of rules
like I described.

But if I have to use defadvice on find-function anyway, one could
almost let-bind load-path around the call (the only advantage of using
find-function-source-path is that any autocalled function triggered
during find-function will not go awry).
