Users requested the ability to move only the function declaration to a base class from blueprints instead all of the nodes inside the function. 


From the user: 

"Essentially, 95% of the time what I want to do is take a function in a child, and make it declared on a base class, but with an empty stub in the base and the existing implementation remaining where it is as an override. It's very rare I want to move the implementation, as the intent usually is to reduce dependencies by allowing calls to be made via a reference to the base. Would be awesome if that could be considered."


It may also prove useful to have a way to move functions to the native base class and leave just a stub function, not just with blueprint parent classes.
