    initial v1  
     1Don't base any other work on this branch just yet, since it's likely to be rebased. I have deprecated the use of `function('f',x)` in favour of using `function('f')(x)`. It's hardly longer to type and much less ambiguous. Otherwise, it seems that the documentation here is actually pretty accurate, apart from being terse. As soon as the objects returned by `function('f')` are consistent, I think users will be forced to learn the (now clear) semantics pretty quickly.

     3The object returned by `function(f)` doesn't allow symbolic operations on it, so people will quickly find they need to evaluate it in order to get a symbolic expression.

     5I haven't changed all doctests to take into account the deprecation, but I've done some files to show the impact of the change (seems relatively minor).
