Checkdoc insists on -flag for variable-names even if -p.


From: Deepak Goel
Subject: Checkdoc insists on -flag for variable-names even if -p.

hello

Consider a variable-definition

(defvar doing-good-p nil)

the -p already lets you know that it is a 'boolean/flag'.. but M-x
checkdoc-current-buffer will want to make it doing-good-p-flag.

Is -flag preferable to -p ?  Isn't -p also acceptable?  (if i had the
choice, i would perhaps use -p instead of -flag).
