What I mean is that printed representation of the result of evaluation
(which is displayed in the echo area, or inserted into the buffer) contains
a literal newline instead of `\n'.  So after evaluating examples from
the manual users will see different results when examples of output
contain `\n' in the manual, and the real displayed output contains
literal newlines.
