I use an adapted function `aktualisieren', which takes
arguments as C-h f does, but then opens the source if
available, narrowed to function mentioned. Code below.

Might that be a step forward?

(defun aktualisieren (function)
  "Go to FUNCTION (a symbol), narrow to region."
   (let ((fn (save-excursion

                                           "Describe function: ")
                                         obarray 'fboundp t nil nil

  (if (file-readable-p
