That's why I proposed to have a variant of "C-h d" that would only
look in the arguments and in the first line of the doc string.  It
would produce less false positives.

Ok but that means it does not exist now, so that's why I say "C-h d" does not work for me for all use cases right now. But ok we agree.

??? It does here.

It's listed at the 1293th lines! I have to scroll for ages, while passing by `magic-mode-regexp-match-limit` or `char-fold-to-regexp`. Surely this cannot be a good solution.
