The reason I've liked this format is that it gives me a quick and
universal way to find *specific* functions with vi or grep, by
searching for "^function_name(".

I'm less concerned with global function searches; there I don't mind
the overhead of more sophisticated tools.

When we're done with this thread, perhaps we can return to endian arguments....
