depfun to find package functions

I'm trying to write a wrapper for depfun, that will also find dependency function inside packages.
My idea is to look for all subfolders of the path that start with + (i.e. package folders), find all the functions in these. That will give me a list of strings to look for (e.g. +myfol/myfun.m gives the string myfol.myfun). I can then see which of these strings appear in the code.
the problem with this is false positives: if there is e.g. a strucutre that happens to use the same syntax (myfol.myfun = somevalue), that will be treated as a call to the package function, when it is not.
is there a neater way of doing this ?
