So it's not just the function's signature you want to hash, but 
it's code as well? What about functions called from the API 
function? Or functions that set data that'll later be used by the 
API functions?

If anything, I would have hashed the unittests of the API 
function. If the behavior of the API function changes in a 
fashion that requires a modification of the unittest, then you 
might need to alert the business logic programmers. Anything less 
than that is just useless noise that'll hide the actual changes 
you want to be warned about among the endless clutter created by 
trivial changes.
