Just to confirm what André said, if the FIXME does not contain the word 
'stub', then apistats has no way to know it's a (pseudo-)stub. I would 
further argue that even a human reading the log would have no way to 
know as quite a few implemented functions still dump their parameters. 
So even for humans it's better to add 'stub' to the FIXME message.
