Okay. Let me re-state this whole thing so that I can assure myself that
I have understood.

   (quote my-function) is exactly the same as 'my-function, i.e.
   (eq (quote my-function) 'my-function) evaluates to t.

   But here we are talking about the result of evaluating

   (quote my-function) which isn't a cons but a symbol. But if we have
   `(quote my-function) that isn't the same as 'my-function. 

   Side note: If anybody knows how to type inline code in gnus message,
   it would be greatly appreciated.
