Docstring mentions substring from old buffer "is inserted into that buffer before its point". But the meaning of "append" is a different one. IMO the current behavior might be expressed as ‘copy-to-buffer’ or ‘insert-in-buffer’, as copy-... is taken already. OTOH would appreciate to have a reliable append, i.e. insert at the EOB.
