The doc string already says that in this case the FRAME argument is
not consulted (by not mentioning FRAME in the description of that
case).  And after my changes the doc string explains that the prefix
arg sets the FRAME argument.  So what you want to say follows
trivially from the doc string.

May I suggest that you do?  The current sources can be viewed on
Savannah.
