help-make-xrefs tries to be smart about providing links, but it could
use some improvement. In the *Help* buffer from `C-h b', for instance,
it provides links for commands that follow `M-x', even for cases such
as `C-M-x'.  The comment for this code says "An obvious case of a key
substitution", which is not correct in this case.  The regexp should
at least be changed to prohibit a symbol character just before `M-x'.

Another problem in the `describe-bindings' display is this code on
line 465 that tries to back up over non-whitespace:

 (skip-chars-backward "^\t\n")

This works only if `indent-tabs-mode' is non-nil in the *Help* buffer.
The string should be "^ \t\n" or equivalent. Otherwise, no commands
are linked.
