On a second thought, there *are* functions in Mathematica which more
or less correspond to the function concept of other languages.  They
can be defined as

f = #^2 &

or

f = Function[{x}, x^2]

They are less flexible than the pattern definitions, but have the
advantage that they can be specified inline (with the #^2& syntax) and
can be automatically compiled for performance.  You'd need a separate
definition for getVariables to make it work on these kinds of
functions.
