vc-dir-quick was my idea.

This name implies its implementation has better performance
over its slower competitor.


I'm saying both the option name and the first sentence of the docstring
don't fit its purpose, or the later description.

This option is multi-purpose and one of its possible values is:

   When a string and `vc-dir' is invoked in a directory outside of
   version control, then this string is used as a default directory name.

You got a point there, but that seems like a rare use case (not sure who would ever use it). I think the variable would be better named after its main use scenario.
