Since we have a 'def' statement it seems confusing to me to talk of
'definition' about something else than a 'def' (even there I prefer "a
def statement" as clearer and more direct, but I guess I'll have to
accept "a function definition" given ``def''... I do wish that keyword
was 'function' rather than 'def', but, oh well, too late for that;-).
