I really dislike that approach to deciding which functions to count.
The main problem with it is that it will try to count C-language
functions that are added after initdb, such as contrib stuff and
third-party add-ons like postgis.  The percentage overhead for a
typical short C function will be large, and I'm not sure anything
much is to be gained by counting these.

I think a more reasonable approach would be to count PL-language
functions; which in turn suggests that the instrumentation hooks
should be in the PL call handlers, not in ExecMakeFunctionResult
and friends where they will drag down performance of all functions.

BTW, I dunno if you've thought about the implications of inlining
of SQL functions ... it's hard to see how to count those reasonably.
