The changes to rx.el since 21.3 need to go in NEWS.

The following change isn't there, though I thought I sent it.  It
makes `rx' work the way it appears to have been intended in view of
the doc, the fact it's basically redundant with rx-to-string
otherwise, and being what you normally want.  It's unlikely to affect
much usage, and there have been incompatible changes made already.

I don't understand why error messages were changed to start `rx'
instead of `Rx', against the conventions for error messages and
package names.
