While GvR *might* prefer removing them completely on any given day, I think
moving them to a functional module, as others have suggested and requested,
is currently more likely. I believe that GvR has indicated at times that
this would be an acceptible compromise.
I am one of those who think the list of builtins is currently too long to
be easily grasped and should be shrunk.
