In Emacs, `C-h a' and M-x apropos RET differ in "back-end": the latter
searches all symbols, not just functions and variables, but the
"front-end" is identical: the results are in the buffer `*Apropos*' and
they look the same. This is why I bound `C-h o' to `apropos' - I think
of it as an "extra junk" apropos.
What I observe in XEmacs is a "front-end" difference: one produces
`*Apropos*' the other `*Hyper-Apropos*'. Is there any `back-end'
[the moment XEmacs switches from ELisp to ANSI CL, I switch from Emacs
to XEmacs. :-] #<you may consider this a troll bait, but I mean it :->
