So you want to replace my programming my udf in whatever language I
want to with that odd language that is bright or dim as the sun depending
on what side of the earth you are on at the time?

I think leave the udf alone and add additional support for a seperate
function mechanism (renaming the current udf function something like
udf_function would probably be acceptable in a new dialect).
