Thank you Eduardo.

That's 1290 functions...

The reference seems to have 1608 functions and 294 commands, so those 
primitives are not even a "useful subset" of emacs lisp functions...

I guess that was a naïve idea. So I'll just have to go through the reference 
and try to find myself a minimaly useful subset (which is what the Intro should 
be about, btw.)
