Good point.  It works okay for C/internal functions, but in those cases
it's usually redundant with the proname.  For PL functions it's a disaster
formatting-wise, because they're often wide and/or multi-line.

As to those names, ick.  Also, what do you envision the output looking
like when multiple functions are selected?  Or would you ban wildcards?
If you do, it's not clear what this does that \sf doesn't do better.

Maybe, given the existence of \sf, we should just drop prosrc from \df+
