Yes, all functions get installed at the moment.  However, that's simply
a limitation: there's no intention that installed functions should be
identical on all systems if that's not useful, any more than
documentation, though we avoid any unnecessary variation.  I'll try to
find some time to see how easy it is to exclude files --- possibly just
doing ad hoc exclusions of suffixes like .in if that's the path of least
