bug#18087: 24.4.50; doc string of `kill-region'

From: Drew Adams
Subject: bug#18087: 24.4.50; doc string of `kill-region'
Date: Wed, 23 Jul 2014 08:49:08 -0700 (PDT)

This text was added to the doc string for Emacs 24.4:

 The optional argument REGION if non-nil, indicates that we're not just killing
 some text between BEG and END, but we're killing the region.

1. That text should be filled, so the lines are no wider than 70

2. The text should say what this "indication" MEANS.  To what or to
   whom are "we" indicating this fact?  And why?  What is the
   USER-VISIBLE EFFECT of a non-nil REGION arg?  Why/when would might
   one want to pass non-nil REGION?  IOW, WHAT IS THIS PARAMETER FOR?
