Well, that's the bit I'm not getting. If they are in the script file I'm
working in, they don't get much more local than that, do they? I can
understand why they would be invisible, say, from the command line despite
being present in a script, but I can't understand why they aren't visible
when they are /in this file/ and why instead they /have to be in a file with
their own name/. 

Nevertheless, that's how it is, and I need separate files for any functions
that I write or else do that init thing. I'll live. But it ain't about
