bug#15558: [gnu.org #859332] Error in elisp on line documentation

Yes, thanks, I see that now.  (And I thought I was reading carefully.)

But might I suggest that the line:

    If every condition evaluates to nil, so that every clause fails, cond returns nil.
be placed after the line:

   
Then, if condition is non-nil when tested, the value of condition becomes the value of the cond form.

It is documented (if a little clunkily):

    A clause may also look like this:

    (condition)

    Then, if condition is non-nil when tested, the value of condition
    becomes the value of the cond form.
