I hate to tell you, but some of us have to program in the real world.
I've found that for myself and most people I know, the use of C functions
is to mark the ``main'' working components of the program, and using
them to ``modularize'' loop bodies can become even more unreadable than
totally unstructured programming (you can't easily tell that the function
is a loop body).
