Which is what we're doing with the OpenACS toolkit.  We can (and have,
actually) stripped these out of the parameter lists but the resulting
function definitions are less clear.

Even with %TYPE we won't actually share datamodel sources, of course,
but the less that's different, the easier it is for folks to work
on the code.
