I think this is oversimplified, because there are multiple proposals on
the table, and it's not entirely clear to me who approves of which.
We have at least the following options:

1. Do nothing.
2. Remove the prosrc column from \df+ altogether.
3. Suppress prosrc for PL functions, but continue to show it for
   C and internal functions (and, probably, rename it to something
   other than "Source code" in that case).
4. #3 plus show PL function source code in footers.

Personally I like #4 better than #3 better than #2 better than #1,
but the only one I'm really against is "do nothing".

Yes.  I agree with your summary that Peter is the only one who appears
to be in favor of "do nothing" (and even there, his complaint was at
least partly procedural not substantive).
