bug#7772: 24.0.50; Documentation Bug: set-scroll-bar-mode

From: Tim Cross
Subject: bug#7772: 24.0.50; Documentation Bug: set-scroll-bar-mode
Date: Mon, 03 Jan 2011 10:12:20 +1100

I think the documentation for set-scroll-bar-mode is lacking. i.e.

,----[ C-h f set-scroll-bar-mode RET ]
| set-scroll-bar-mode is a compiled Lisp function in `scroll-bar.el'.
| (set-scroll-bar-mode VALUE)
| Set `scroll-bar-mode' to VALUE and put the new value into effect.
| [back]

While this is accurate, it provides no additional explination or benefit..
At the very least, it should probably mention that value can be nil,
'left or 'right and what these different values mean.

,----[ C-h f set-scroll-bar-mode RET ]
| set-scroll-bar-mode is a compiled Lisp function in `scroll-bar.el'.
| (set-scroll-bar-mode VALUE)
| Specifies whether to have vertical scroll bars and where to place them.
| Possible values are nil (no scroll bars), `left' (scroll bars on left)
| and `right' (scroll bars on right).

There are two types of people in IT - those who do not manage what they 
understand and those who do not understand what they manage.
