Hi Mark,

I'd like to steer this discussion away from -function vs. -functions, to get
at the underlying concern you've expressed. Is it that the use of nadvice in
cases like these seems heavyweight? I'm wonder if
eldoc-documentation-functions has become something of a red herring, when
really the point you were making is more fundamental.
