Found it (sort of).

It is `M-x ielm' and then (documentation FUNCTION). It
works only for functions. But faces and variables also
have documentation... There should be a generic such
command!

I didn't find a (source n) equivalent.

Also, the IELM and/or `documentation' doesn't seem to
wrap lines or respect the \n in the docstrings. Makes
it a lot less practical.
