Yes, in C API, the callback (of hook_process) is called in the child process,
and then this callback can do anything with the command received (which is
"func:name"). So the function name is not really used (the callback can use it
if needed).

The behavior is different in scripting API, the callback is called too, and this
callback runs the function after "func:", so the callback is called only one
time in script, after the call to function in child.
