It's not good enough for what Terje was complaining about.  Under
XEmacs, if you open the "Buffers" menu, you can choose the buffer you
want to go to.  But there is no keybinding equivalent to "go to buffer
named foo.c", hence none is written.  In this case, one must learn the
procedure by reading the manual.  I have no problem with this, but
Terje confesses to have been unwilling to do so for years.  Maybe it
can be improved?

Since this is cross-posted to XEmacs lists, the variable name is
`teach-extended-commands-p' under XEmacs.
