    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....
