In general, I think we should include more examples in our
documentation.  shortdoc.el is a step forward here, and it would be
even better if you could see those examples when you pull up the
docstring of a function.

IMO, examples are for the manual, not for the doc strings.  If some
parts of our manuals could benefit from more examples, patches for
that would be welcome.

I think displaying the examples we have in shortdoc.el in the
*Help* buffer would make a lot of sense.



Some one wrote quite a few examples here: https://github.com/xuchunyang/elisp-demos
