Making all calls from C go through the symbol's function field rather
than calling the C function directly, so as to make advice work right,
is unlikely to happen any time soon.
But if you have specific requests of particular functions which might
deserve such a treatment, we might do it (tho it'll probably depend on
the specifics).
After all, I did do such a change myself for `expand-abbrev' in the past.
