A Function has an Attribute "parms" in its grammar, which directs to class

>>> f.parms["a"] # doctest: +ELLIPSIS
Symbol(a[int]) at 0x...
Its content are Parameter instances. Parameter has an Attribute "typing".

The Instructions of our small sample are just words. Because Function is a
List, we can access them one by one.

Function(['do_this', 'do_that'], name=Symbol('f'))

f is 'do_this'
