Rather than provide a slightly cleaner way of doing this, I'd rather
we replace it with something much cleaner.
When Hyperbole is incorporated into Emacs, it should not override any
function definitions located elsewhere in Emacs. Not one!
Instead, we should fix those function definitions to do what Hyperbole
needs. Either we could include in their normal definitions the
functionality that Hyperbole uses, or we could give them hooks so that
Hyperbole can add functionality to them in a modular way.
