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.
