IIUC, the function would replace the formula, so it's really the
formula in a different guise, similar to what Eric F. was talking
about: implementing the formula as a source block. Both of them put
the code in some other place, where there is space to add comments.
IOW, it's not a general-purpose function. But I may be misconstruing
what Emmanuel was suggesting.
