In that case, I think we could establish the convention that our
discussions of API functions should include just the function prototype,
and a quick paraphrased version of the docstring.  Any objections?

We might also say that those with the appropriate copyright assignment
for Emacs could post a sample implementation; but this may end up
complicating the work for the Emacs maintainers, to make sure that all
code has been assigned.
