I'm against this change.  We don't seem to need it.  I think it will
cause more work than it will save, given how seldomly we write new

I think it is best to keep Ffoo (at least) explicit.  It would be strange
indeed if grep finds uses of a DEFUN, but not the DEFUN itself.  This
would be suboptimal.

This explicit Ffoo is used by (amongst others?) c-defun-name, a component
of `add-change-log-entry-other-window', C-x 4 a, which is used

After this change, c-defun-name would need to be significantly
complicated in order to parse both the traditional and new versions of

I am against this change.
