lispref/text.texi "Registers", and man/regs.texi "RegText"

User-agent: Gnus/5.09 (Gnus v5.9.0) Emacs/21.4

i see that user-level commands (like copy-to-register) are commented
out w/ @ignore.  i see their documentation in ../man/regs.texi (node
"RegText").  however, i do not see any indication that "saving the
text" now involves `filter-buffer-substring' (which is documented in
node "Buffer Contents" in lispref/text.texi).

the change is already mentioned in NEWS, but i think some mention
needs to made of this in one of the two manuals, as well.  perhaps
naming that variable and adding an xref in "RegText" to lispref's
"Buffer Contents" would suffice.  see proposed patch below.
