Perhaps I misread the text from the man page when I read it before.
What is the default regexp, and how is it used?

That may help things.  I presume a script can extract the entity
names from the hunk headers and eliminate duplicates.

So the remaining question is, is the detection of entities complete,
or can we make it complete?

Can you show me this built-in definition?

Is there one for Emacs Lisp?

Is there one for Bison input?
