Often they are, but not in this case.  Emacs C code
is written in a style that stresses function calls.
Lessons learned from hacking on Emacs internals
are useful in other GNU packages, and gnulib is a common
way to share this sort of thing.  In this particular case
the arrow of innovation is from Emacs to gnulib, not the other
way around.
