Please make sure that any changes you make in this don't break 
loaddefs.el.  I believe loaddefs is the reason for that requirement of 
how the doc string should begin (since loaddefs is generated by a 
program, there's no problem satisfying that requirement in that case).  I 
imagine that there was some reason to require such a format, in which 
case we should avoid breaking that.

Richard, do you recall why this format was required?
