I agree with removing the source code field, though I did like the suggestion mentioned elsewhere for having it shown when it's just a C symbol but not otherwise. If we can find a way to have the C symbol shown when it's a C or internal function, I'm fine with that, but the source code field having entier pl/sql and pl/pgsql functions in it doesn't work and \sf should be used instead. Thanks! Stephen
