The documentation in the _manuals_ doesn't have to happen immediately,
although it should be our goal to make that happen more frequently
than it happens today: after all, those who use the development Emacs
should also ideally have the manuals to go with that.  But NEWS should
have some minimal documentation of the new feature _immediately_,
i.e. as part of the last commit of the feature.  Otherwise, users will
have no idea what is being added and how to use it, and frequently
even not that it was in fact added.

Thanks in advance.

I've attached a preliminary patch for NEWS.
