It's not an "or" - the two are orthogonal (except for key binding
choice/conflict).  I was talking about how much info is shown.  You're talking
about where the info is displayed.

The `apropos' approach is good because it lets users define a personal
preference that might be for seeing more info (=t), yet it also lets users
change the behavior on the fly using a prefix arg.

I don't see the output of even the full info as being something voluminous,
necessitating *Help*.  But perhaps you had something more in mind.  The info
we've discussed so far should be OK for the minibuffer.
