 that would be useful, a keyword like:

function p params;

that always calls function no matter what. maybe best would be to have
something like:

run -f fname params # if (f=find_function("fname"))!=null executes f else error
run -c cname params # same as command cname params
same with alias?

maybe together with some general "whatis" mechanism, that would give
information about a symbol, its definitions, and the order in which
they are to be resolved.

sincerely,
pg
