Stefan suggested `apropos-user-option' and I did the change following
his suggestion, because I agree `apropos-user-option' is good too.

Let me restate the point I tried to make in this thread:

  My point was that, for small changes (like this one or the ones you
  often request about docstrings), patches are more likely to be more
  closely and quickly considered than discussions, because they speak
  for themselves.  If they do not, and if it is a small change, then
  probably we're bikeshed'ing.
