This is a real conversation that took place between me and Bobo.  Bobo's name and the Specific topic have been changed to protect the innocent.  Unrelated channel content has been removed for ease of reading.

<Galen> Is "function" valid _sometimes_ in Subsystem, or in other Subsystem-like windows?
<Bobo> No, "function" is never valid in Subsystem.
<Galen> is it valid in other Subsystem-like windows?
<Bobo> Yes.
<Galen> Perhaps, the Subsystem window is programatically an extension
        (specialization) of a base Subsystem-like window, then
<Bobo> It is.
<Galen> in which case "function" is a valid option in Subsystem-like windows, but is disabled in
        Subsystem because it is not valid in that specific context.
<Bobo> It's not valid in any other Subsystem-like window either.
<Galen> <Galen> is it valid in other Subsystem-like windows?
<Galen> <Bobo> Yes.
<Bobo> Okay now we're arguing, so I'm done.
