Thank you. 

Unfortunately, I cannot apply it. Could you send create it with
format-patch against maint's tip, without gzipping it?

It sounds like a commercial ad.

Fair enough.

OK, will do, if I remember about it.

It is not about English grammar, but about Texinfo syntax.

  @xref{whatever}, for example.


  See Section 3.1 [whatever], page 24, for example.


  @xref{whatever} for example.


  See Section 3.1 [whatever], page 24 for example.

which is awkward.

Too bad. I found it hilarious (!). Let's remove it then.

Ah well. I find names following specific schemes funny, at times.

The original is correct since it provides a name for the function being

You may not find it funny, but it's definitely informative, since it
illustrates the :options attribute.
