Not my place to elaborate; Mike designed it AFAIK.  For example, I
think your design which has the user name as an argument makes sense;
why Mike did *not* do it that way I don't know.  Please ask him.

If you want to look at docs, you'll probably want to install XEmacs.
It's consider internal to startup.el, and not documented in the Lisp
Reference according C-h C-f.  C-h a user.*file RET will give a list of
related functions; in XEmacs the preferred style is to provide
docstrings even for internal functions, so that's probably the best
we've got.

The Lisp Reference for XEmacs is available online at
http://www.xemacs.org/Documentation/.  Source for these APIs will be in


but internal evidence suggests that copyrights are not up-to-date and
I don't know Mike's code's assignment status, so you may wish to take
care when looking at that.
