bug#1436: 23.0.60; region-active-p and kill-ring-save

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

The news says:

*** `region-active-p' returns non-nil when Transient Mark mode is
enabled and there is an active region.  This is NOT the best function
to use to test whether a command should operate on the region instead
of the usual behavior -- for that, use `use-region-p'.

However, kill-ring-save uses region-active-p, is that not contradictory?

BTW, the doc string of use-region-p seems to make little sense.

Best,

Leo
