Now that we're looking at the whole thing, I have a few more comments.

It would flow a bit better to say "which must be a live buffer object".

I don't see any reference to OS/2 in the code, so I think we should just
drop it.  And I'm not sure what the "-*" in "Windows-*" means; I think
we should just say "unless `system-type' is `windows-nt' or `ms-dos'".

This seems to be wrong, OPTIONS is not a list.  It should say "OPTIONS
is a string of space-separated options to pass to PROGRAM".

I think these last 2 sentences should be combined into something like:

"FILES is a list of filenames to pass to PROGRAM; nil and \"\" elements
are ignored."
