bug#6599: 23.2; cl.texi docs loop hash-values

In the cl.texi docs for the `loop' macro I had to read a few times
before noticing the way hash values are accessed.  I think showing as
items and adding an example would make it easier for the newcomer :-).

2010-07-09  Kevin Ryde  <address@hidden>

        * cl.texi (For Clauses): @items for hash-values and key-bindings
        to make them more visible when skimming.  Add examples of `using'
        clause to them, examples being clearer than a description in
        words.

 @item for @var{var} being the hash-keys of @var{hash-table}
-This clause iterates over the entries in @var{hash-table}.  For each
-hash table entry, @var{var} is bound to the entry's key.  If you write
address@hidden hash-values} instead, @var{var} is bound to the values
-of the entries.  The clause may be followed by the additional
-term @samp{using (hash-values @var{var2})} (where @code{hash-values}
-is the opposite word of the word following @code{the}) to cause
address@hidden and @var{var2} to be bound to the two parts of each
-hash table entry.
address@hidden for @var{var} being the hash-values of @var{hash-table}
+This clause iterates over the entries in @var{hash-table} with
address@hidden bound to each key, or value.  A @samp{using} clause can bind
+a second variable to the opposite part.

address@hidden example
 
 @item for @var{var} being the key-codes of @var{keymap}
address@hidden for @var{var} being the key-bindings of @var{keymap}
 This clause iterates over the entries in @var{keymap}.
 The iteration does not enter nested keymaps but does enter inherited
 (parent) keymaps.
-You can use @samp{the key-bindings} to access the commands bound to
-the keys rather than the key codes, and you can add a @code{using}
-clause to access both the codes and the bindings together.
+A @code{using} clause can access both the codes and the bindings
