Why do you care? You can use \sf if you want to copy&paste the
function code.

My vote (which was not counted by Stephen) was to remove it from \df+
altogether. I stand by that. People who are used to seeing the output
in \df+ will wonder "where the heck did it go" and eventually figure it
out, at which point it's no longer a problem. We're not breaking
anyone's scripts, that's for sure.

If we're not removing it, I +0 support the option of moving it to
footers. I'm -1 on doing nothing.
