I don't care about the wiki.  I think the wiki is a bastardly place to
put user-level documentation about a software package: bare,
unstructured, unmaintained, and without any decent QA.  Basically, a
dump.

For me, anything that's worth being documented should be in Emacs, in
one of the documents that come with it.  (One such document we didn't
yet consider is the Emacs FAQ (doc/misc/faq.texi).  Maybe I can
persuade you guys to document this there.)

If it doesn't deserve to be in the FAQ or elsewhere in Emacs, then to
me it means that it doesn't deserve to be mentioned anywhere.

If that is all you want, there's no need to do anything at all:
googling for this issue will surely find it years from now.
