Old email alert...

As far as the manual is concerned, I don't see anything else that we
could do.  As things stand, the index entries for `regex' and
`string-match' go straight to the relevant doc, and if you do `i match',
the third result is the doc for match objects.

The online help - currently nothing at all - could be improved, though.
We could address this particular case by cutting/pasting/editing from
the manual text.  Or, we could do something more general: basically
post-process the manual in some way so that it can provide online help
strings.  Any thoughts on that?

(To get this to work, we might need a commenting convention to indicate
which module the following section of manual is covering.)
