I think it makes sense for non-canonical FunctionTypes to keep around
undecayed array types as parameters.  Anything that queries a
FunctionTypeLoc for a should be prepared to run into undecayed array types
in parameters.  (It doesn't make sense to build a TypeSourceInfo for a
pointer which was never actually written in the code.)  It might make sense
for the default iterators/accessors for FunctionTypes to automatically
decay the parameter types, with an alternate version for anything that
really wants the undecayed type (e.g. the TypeLoc code).
