Oh, OK, the problem was in the lines/column output, not with detecting
the doc strings themselves?

Yes, that sounds like a problem, but...  I think we can live with
inaccurate lines here.

Yeah, I guess fill.el is a pretty far down in the list of things that
loadup.el loads?

However, we could make a super-simple function for filling doc
strings -- doing something that's good enough for that particular task
shouldn't take more than a few lines.
