I know, what 3rd party code means, thanks. It was irony that Calc is
3rd-party code (well I don't know how to mark a sentence as irony in a
mail). It's problematic that Calc implemented on this way (using API).

But anyway I added a new functionality to Calc and for doing that I
needed to extend API too. I hope it's an acceptable reason. Can we
agree on that?

OK. Then I'll move median to the end of this GeneralFunction enum, to
avoid broke those 3rd party code which uses enums on such way it leads
to problem.
