Hm, the control framework only tries to update consts.  I'm surprised it's even trying to send it unless functions are actually const internally even though they're declared global.

Not that I can think of.  I've had the notion of sending functions in mind for a while and I think it would be great to be able to do that (primarily at first for live updates to the notice policy at first as you indicated) but for now we can just cut out functions.
