That depends on the size/complexity of the function, but it's
interesting to consider the packaging situation in that manner.

It's also interesting to think about whether the recursive composition
of trivial (non-copyrightable) packages constitutes a copyrightable
work, and if so, at what point.  Because you'd otherwise imagine that
any program could be factored such that it is a sum of a large number of
trivial components.

I digress...
