I'm not against adding this feature to make-docfile, but are we sure
this problem is real nowadays?  What systems cannot grok the full list
of Lisp files?  shortlisp is 2.2KB long; how much longer can the full
list be?  I don't think we have any system supported that cannot
handle at least 10K long commands, do we?

Maybe we should simply dump this ugliness, and see if someone hollers?
