bug#14546: 24.3.50; semantic/bovine/el.el + return value of `which-function'

Jambunathan K-3

I see that when Emacs lisp files are parsed by semantic, the return
value of `which-function' has extra decorations.

1. Put the below snippet in your .emacs
2. emacs -Q
3. Examine *Messages* buffer. You will see

     {declare-function}
     (find-file)

   The `{}' and `()' are what I call decorations.  

4. Comment  `load-library' line in .emacs. Restart emacs.
5. You will see

     ;; null-device
     ;; find-file


Semantic intelligently identifies the `declare-function' rightly while
Emacs naively identifies a preceding `defvar'.  (Thumbs up for semantic
parsing)

But, please clarify how to interpret the extra decorations (or remove
them if they are spurious).

 ;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom.
 ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
 ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
 ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.

(load-library "semantic/bovine/el.el")


(find-library "files.el")

(re-search-forward "declare-function")
(forward-char 5)
(message (which-function))

(find-function 'find-file)
(forward-line 1)
(message (which-function))

If this is problematic for someone, he will report it.  So closing it.
