functions for brevity) may be defined in arbitrary orders in a system


NEW: Forward reference to functions in the same system is forbidden,
because it will cause undefined function warnings, which will break the

Do I understand correctly?  If so, at least on ACL, the change will be
very hard on the existing code base.

Or are we going to re-check the warnings at the end of the process and
ignore warnings for seemed-to-be-undefined-functions-that-are-now-defined?
