BTW, for after the release, I wonder if we shouldn't also free up `C-x ['
and `C-x ]'?

1. They are not particularly handy for repeated movement (except via `z z

2. `C-s C-q C-l' (`C-s C-s...') is quicker for repeated movement among
pages. (I always use that.)

3. The use of `C-u C-]' is good, to move forward N pages, but that's
probably almost as useful without any binding (using `C-u M-x

Just a thought.

Independent of this, I think the Emacs manual should explicitly mention
(remind people of) `C-s C-q C-l' (`C-s C-s...'). It mentions using `C-q C-l'
to insert a page break, but it doesn't mention searching for page breaks.
This should be obvious, but a reminder wouldn't hurt.
