Also noted by Kai.  Indeed.  It is this kind of lightning bolt thinking
that we here on the A team are looking for :-)

Trying to be of help for a change, I was gonna make the context diffs
but noticed I didn't have the texinfo source handy, anyways, you get
the idea:

! search backward and kill text before point.
  --- 1188,1196 ----
  (`zap-to-char') reads a character and kills from point up to (and
  including) the next occurrence of that character in the buffer.  A
  numeric argument acts as a repeat count.  A negative argument means to
! search backward and kill text before point.  To kill up to, but not
! including the target character, for example "b", use `M-z b b'.

Also add that sentence to the *help* message.
