It used to be the case that subr-x functions were deliberately not
documented in the manual:


A few seem to have snuck in since then:

- string-clean-whitespace
- string-fill
- string-limit
- string-lines
- string-pad
- string-chop-newline
- replace-region-contents

Yet the manual makes no mention of subr-x as a non-preloaded library
(though some definitions like if-let and when-let are now autoloaded).

So a bit more consistency would indeed be nice, e.g. via autoloading all
definitions documented in the manual, trimming recently added but less
important subr-x definitions from the manual, etc.
