The problem is that there's absolutely no way to do the equivalent of a plain
\dt and get a list of just your user functions. That's a real headache and it
gets worse as we add more and more system functions too.

It might be cute to see if the pattern matches any user functions and if not
try again with system functions. So you would still get results if you did 
"\df rtrim" for example.
