   Sorry, I guess I don't really understand call_function()...

   Are builtin functions that aren't recognized by the server going to be 
   converted into call_function() calls by set_verb_code() too?  Or just 
   when it boots the database?  I wasn't talking about the portability of 
   an entire database, I was talking about the portability of one 
   individual object.  If unknown builtin functions are switched to 
   call_function() calls by set_verb_code() too, with only a warning saying 
   that it doesn't know that function, then forget my ranting.

I would find this to be a bad idea---sometimes I misspell builtins
when creating verbs.  It's nice to have this caught at "compile time"
rather than waiting til later during execution.  Though I suppose it's
no worse than misspelling variable names and I could cope if this
change were made.
