No, *not* populated first-time-through, because that won't handle any of
the CREATE, DROP, or UPGRADE cases. It's also doing a lot of work you
might never need. I was thinking of "populate on demand", that is, first
time you need to know whether function X is shippable, you find that out
and then cache the answer (whether it be positive or negative).

Roger that. Off to the races..
