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.
