Would it be too inelegant to inform the user if there are any keys
bound for a function when doing describe-function?

I mean if one does
(describe-function (quote kill-rectangle))
one learns lots of stuff, but perhaps for the most important item,

kill-rectangle is on C-x r k

one must remember to also check with C-h w.
I'd say put it also on the first line of the C-h f output.

I mean often we are querying about commands that we think are minor
and probably aren't already bound to keys, and therefore wouldn't
double check with C-h w.  Therefore unexpected news of bindings would
be welcome.

[Also it seems that emacs doesn't have a single command that would gather
_all_ the documentation for something... [Help&Info&Keybindings...]]
