This is one way to do it, not necessarily the only way.
I don't think a 4 line init.el is that complicated ;).

How do you change your functions?
If I want to do it, I tinker with them directly in my emacs.org and
evaluate from there or copy the relevant bits to the *scratch* buffer
and bring them back to emacs.org once it works. If the file changed,
the el file gets tangled fresh automatically next time I start emacs and
used right away.

I suspect what he means is that if he uses `C-h f <function>` or `M-x
find-function RET <function>` it opens the .el associated with the
function when he would rather it open the associated .org file (or
better yet open the src block for editing) so that the changes can be
added without having to look for the correct file (if the functions
are split into sub-files based on associated mode/package).

I have had this problem before (on minor changes so I found them
again easily enough).

I don't really see a problem?
