Nope.  And please state explicitly everything that it does -
just what it saves and restores, inhibits, etc.  Otherwise,
from the simple doc string alone it is not obvious what
code (bindings etc.) this can replace.  Yes, a user can
consult the source code, but there is no reason not to
describe what it does in more detail than just "pretending
it does not modify the buffer".
