Just to show how one can split hairs:
I write functions in a shell script. These functions have names that
do not exist as an external thing. They are functions. I extract every
function in a shell file, made executable. These are utilities. Then, my
function in my initial script are "utilities implemented as functions".
Hence, by this very magic manipulation, _without changing a single
character in the file_, they have to change behavior...
