    The concrete effect of `(defconst var value)' is that it is equivalent
    with `(defvar var value)' followed by `(setq var value)'

Just a nit-picking reminder:

The example you gave, without doc strings, is correct. However, in general,
defconst is not exactly the same as defvar followed by setq. Like defvar,
defconst lets you change the doc string, as well as the value.
