I know about looking at the documentation of `def`. But you are
assuming here that the puzzled reader associates the (leading) list
markup with the function definition.
The trailing list markup (that I personally favored) hasn't been in
contention since May? June?
Anyway, the pie syntax offers more index entries than the list syntax.
