FWIW, I like a lot the new advice system and I understand why does not
make sense to spend much time with the old advices (I'm quite happy to
see the end of ad-do-it and other clumsy macros).

But I also agree with Drew that the current doctrings for adviced
functions are horrible and a big step backwards for users.
