bug#15717: 24.3.50; document `custom-available-themes', `custom-known-th

These functions are as important for programmers as is `custom-theme-p'.
It is especially important to distinguish them, in particular wrt
`custom-theme-p', which uses only `custom-known-themes'.  An "available"
theme is not necessarily a "known" theme.  This can be confusing.

For example, I was doing this at first:

(defcustom doremi-custom-themes ()
  "*List of custom themes to cycle through using `doremi-custom-themes+'."
  :type '(repeat (restricted-sexp :match-alternatives (custom-theme-p)))
  :group 'doremi-misc-commands)

But what I really needed was the following, because the "available" themes
are not necessarily available from the outset - the set of "known" themes
is too limited for use here.

(defcustom doremi-custom-themes ()
  "*List of custom themes to cycle through using `doremi-custom-themes+'."
  :type '(repeat (restricted-sexp
                  :match-alternatives
                  ((lambda (s) (memq s (custom-available-themes))))))
  :group 'doremi-misc-commands)
