A thought:

My first idea when this came up was to alter the wordcode for functions
with redirections to explicitly add the implicit set of braces, e.g.,

foo () { echo foo } >&3


foo () { { echo foo } >&3 }

Then it would not be necessary to mess with printing/dumping etc. of the
definition, or invent a new place to store the redirections.  Yeah, output
of "functions" et al. becomes a little less faithful but so what?

Sadly I never managed to make that work, but maybe the concept is helpful
for dump file creation.
