I agree with Drew that the paragraph about the KEYMAP arg could be
improved.  Currently we have

| Optional KEYMAP is the default keymap bound to the mode keymap.  If
| non-nil, it should be a variable name (whose value is a keymap), or
| ...

It's not clear that this is about specifying the _name_ of a keymap (a
symbol), in contrast to specifying a keymap (value).

I also agree that the doc could make clearer if and when the arguments
are evaluated.


Michael.
