The doc string is indeed clear, but I personally wouldn't have expected
that behaviour.  I'm curious if there's a particular reason why C-v
deviates from the convention of other similar movement commands, where
specifying a numerical ARG `n' would have the effect of performing that
command's action `n' times (e.g. M-3 M-f to move forward three words).
