That seems reasonable.  It should be simple, except there's a bunch of work we need to do to do fuzzy name matches (like folks expect if they look up foo::bar by name, it should match blah::foo::bar, etc.  So encapsulating that for symbols makes sense as it does with functions.  The FindFunctions with include_symbols=true is a separate thing, because it also does the work of coalescing symbols and functions so you don't end up with two copies of the same thing.

You're making another pass over all the functions even though you know that's not going to turn up anything.  Why not just go look for symbols directly?
