Not that I recall, on list.  There has been discussion on and off in various 
chat rooms over the last 3-ish years.  The general pattern seems to be "that 
would be cool and useful!  But how do we define them, and how does autoloading 
work for something that's a one liner?"  And since no one has a good answer for 
that, it kinda dies there.

I wouldn't expect a formal discussion thread on it until someone has a solid 
proposal that addresses those questions that they want to run up the flag pole.
