Which is a bug in the code, not in the documentation, IMO.  It makes
no sense to show as default a regexp that will hide more than just the
package at point.

This is why I said in the documentation what I think should happen,
although I did see the regexp we offer as the default.  Patches to
make the code do what it should are welcome.
