Ok. Everything I'm doing about the lispref also seems to apply to
21.5 too - this section is identical.
I personally don't care if examples never make it to the lispref, I
can always just put them on my blog. It's the erroneous and
misleading docs that I care about.
I’m enthusiastic about (your :) fixing the docs in 21.4, and applying the same
changes to 21.5. I include docstrings in “docs”.
I don’t think that there’s enough of a win for changing code when that code
change is not a clear bugfix.
I'm going to give people a few days to reply to any points
touched upon, before I start to write any more change proposals.
