I think Andrea wanted something that:

 (a) goes and gets a function definition
     (from a tags file or the function's source code)
 (b) returns to the original location, and
 (c) yanks the definition at point.

The thing-at-pt functions pick up stuff at or near point.
They don't (and shouldn't) do excursion stuff or yanking.

That said, these functions in `thingatpt+.el' might be of some use in this
context: `region-or-word-nearest-point', `region-or-word-at-point'. They pick up
the active region or (if inactive) the word nearest/at point.
