I don't mean zigzag's internal and external functions, I mean
ones we've written (zigzag itself and ZigZag::*) and ones we haven't
(eg Curses, DB, etc.).

Just for ease of use, basically.  It means you can tell by
looking if it's "our" function or "not our" function.

I have a personal reason for liking the & - they cue in my
syntax-highlighting on this-is-a-function.  The diseases I have mean
my reading isn't near as good as it used to be, and I -need- the
syntax highlighting.  I can't read code without it anymore ...
