> John, could you please have a look at this?
> Btw, I find the documentation in align.el hard to understand. It
> sounds like a very powerful feature, but I would have difficulties
> using it, with the doc strings as my only guidance. Some examples of
> unclear or confusing documentation:
> . align-region-separate has this to describe the 'group' method:
> Each contiguous set of lines where a specific alignment occurs is
> considered a section for that alignment rule.
> What is a "contiguous set of lines"? Does it mean non-empty lines,
> i.e. that groups are separated by empty lines (that's what the
> example seems to imply)?
> . align-rules-list has this to describe the 'group' attribute:
> [...] For alignment rules, these are the characters that will be
> deleted/expanded for the purposes of alignment. The "alignment
> character" is always the first character immediately following
> this parenthesis group. This attribute may also be a list of
> integers, in which case multiple alignment characters will be
> aligned, with the list of integers identifying the whitespace
> groups which precede them. The default for this attribute is 1.
> Which "this parenthesis group" is being alluded to here? Also, it
> leaves unexplained how characters are specified by integers, and
> the meaning of the default value of 1 is thus unclear.
> So patches to clarify the documentation in align.el are most welcome.
