I've had that in my local stash for a while, waiting for a significant
change to push in that file.

I don't follow.

`elisp-xref-find-def-functions' is a hook that is called from
`elisp--xref-find-definitions'; why should it be in find-func?

The only file that currently puts a function on that hook is
cedet/mode-local.el; it adds similar functionality to
`help-fns-describe-function-functions' and `find-function-regexp-alist'.

That code has a FIXME about moving it to
`elisp-xref-find-def-functions'; there is already code in cl-generic
that puts similar functionality on
`help-fns-describe-function-functions' and `find-function-regexp-alist'.

It does; I just tried it on some of the ones defined in
