Re: Improved help from minibuffer prompts

    Changing uses of &optional (var default) is easy enough, but, what about
    "defun*"s or "defmacro*"s that use &key args?

Using defun* is not in itself a problem.  Using keyword args
would be somewhat strange in the Help buffer since it will
show syntax that is not meaningful in Emacs Lisp, but if
users don't get confused by this, it isn't a problem.

The specific problem I want to avoid is arguments whose
default is not nil; that is to say, for which omitting an arg
is not equivalent to using nil for it.
