[Orgmode] org-iswitchb documentation

Dear all,

As the author of iswitchb, I was very happy to see M-x org-iswitchb
included.  Further, it is recommended as a default keybinding in the

1.3 Activation

     (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.org\\'" . org-mode))
     (global-set-key "\C-cl" 'org-store-link)
     (global-set-key "\C-ca" 'org-agenda)
     (global-set-key "\C-cb" 'org-iswitchb)

So I was surprised when trying org-iswitchb that I didn't see the
iswitchb feedback when typing buffer names.  I eventually found that I
needed to set either of the following variables to t so that this would

  org-completion-use-iswitchb, org-completion-use-ido

These variables are not mentioned in the docstrings of either
org-iswitchb or org-icompleting-read.   Here is a suggested patch to the
docstring for org-iswitchb.

Thanks for all the good work, as ever!
