I realize there is overlap, hence the duplication of tests for primitive vs 
lisp etc within multiple buckets. And within a given cond level, order is by 
(my judgement) of priority - commands first, ID as a functions before values, 
user options before setq ones, etc.

This logic flow is exactly what I was looking for feedback on, as well as how 
to identify more specifically those currently falling into the "t" or "other" 
buckets - currently over half the symbols are neither functions nor variables 
nor faces. Too bad apparently predicates don't exist to cover all possible 
symbol types.

Once I have the "skeleton" to my satisfaction, I plan to output the relevant 
docstrings as well, so when I'm looking at a package's "diff report" 
everything's in one place.
