I'm really sorry, but for me the asynchronicity of email and the
possibility of responding after a few days/weeks instead of a few
minutes is one of the main advantages of email as such (as opposed to
"tools" like Facebook, which I consider more of "toys", also because of
the difficulty to spread the conversation to weeks).  I can only spend
that much time on Emacs bugs each day - similarly with other things -
and I often respond after long time (especially if the response needs
some time/effort to compose).

I'm not sure what to do next with this bug.  I tried with the
abovementioned short Elisp file and failed.  Since no-one said that the
current behavior is wrong, maybe I'll try to study the code of
`mark-defun' and modify the docstring/manual accordingly.

Best,
