the command `eval-last-sexp' has a very useful feature: Having point at
a symbol (or a sexp) that is enclosed in `...'  (think of the manual or
docstrings), the sorrounded quotes are ignored so that evaluation of it

OTOH, `pp-eval-last-sexp' doesn't have this feature.  I think it really
really should, I can't see any disadvantage.  As a workaround, the
following works well for me:

  (fset #'pp-last-sexp (symbol-function 'preceding-sexp))

Besides: IMHO it's a pity that pp.el is not described in any manual (or
is it? - didn't find something).

At least, the header of pp.el should describe how to use it.  E.g. just
tell the user to do

     (global-set-key [?\C-x ?\C-e] 'pp-eval-last-sexp)
     (global-set-key [?\M-:] 'pp-eval-expression)

or something like that.
