bug#2270: 23.0.90; find-library: (1) doc string, (2) other-window version

1. The doc string of find-library says only this:
"Find the elisp source of LIBRARY."
Hardly very helpful. What is LIBRARY? A file name as a string?
Absolute or relative? A symbol naming a feature? A symbol naming a
relative file name? All of the above?
Also, "elisp" should be "Emacs-Lisp".
2. Please add this command (or equivalent), after adjusting its doc
string also to explain what LIBRARY is:
(defun find-library-other-window (library)
"Find the Emacs-Lisp source of LIBRARY in another window."
(let* ((path (cons (or find-function-source-path load-path)
(def (if (eq (function-called-at-point) 'require)
(when def (setq def (and (locate-file-completion def path 'test) def)))
(list (completing-read "Library name: " 'locate-file-completion
path nil nil nil def))))
(let ((buf (find-file-noselect (find-library-name library))))
(pop-to-buffer buf 'other-window)))
