Description:
I wonder, why metaphone is an example UDF and not a built in function.

It's a quite useful function and works much better than soundex. Are there any known issues with memleaks or something or is it just to have a "useful" example?

How to repeat:
/.

Suggested fix:
Make the metaphon example a built in function.
