Re: new apropos feature in Emacs-22

    I think it would be a _lot_ more intuitive to just have apropos
    functions interpret PATTERN as a regexp if it's a string, and as a
    list of keywords if it's a list.  There could be a
    "read-apropos-pattern" function that would convert the user's input
    into the appropriate lisp value, which could be used directly in the
    (interactive ) form of various apropos commands.

That is a very good idea.  Would someone like to do it?
