a single function, from another source.

We (FPC) had talked about code fragments being bundled at one time and I'm
pretty sure we wanted to be lenient.  However, I can't seem to find the
wording in the guideline about it.... One possibility is that we made the
idea of code fragments a reason to grant exceptions rather than a reason
you don't have to get an exception.  Perhaps

My suggestion would be to open an exception request and mention that these
are code fragments (with whatever details you can find)... Hopefully one of
the other FPC members will remember more details about this and we'll be
able to grant it (and make that portion of the guideline more visible).
