XEmacs has `Info-elisp-ref' which jumps to the Elisp manual entry for
a function, defaulting to the function at point.  Add a fallback to
the current docstring's function, and you're most of the way there
(the problem being that I-e-r currently doesn't know how to check
other manuals than the Lispref).
