    Am I the only one who's annoyed by the way describe-mode now displays
    minor modes?

    It fills up the beginning of the buffer with notes about a zillion minor
    modes, most of which I don't care about, and which almost always manage
    to push the major mode description (which I usually _do_ care about)
    entirely off the screen?

I think it used to put the minor modes after the major mode.  The
problem was, people did not even know the minor mode info was there.

    E.g., make the layout something like:

       (Information on [minor modes] comes after the major mode description)

This might be ok.  It should also suggest typing C-x ] C-x ] to get to
the minor mode information.  That should always work, since the major
mode doc string should never contain a page break.
