Or how about if it worked like `split-string'?
Brilliant idea. How about this?

Looks good to me.

But I think examples belong in the manual, not in the doc string.

With regard to emacs beginners: Why not have it in
both places?

Function docs are a very quick and easy to use tool.
Information there helps a lot.

The manual is fine but too much for the beginner, who
is always in a risk to get drowned (or drunk) with.

PS.: As already mentioned: there is a gap between the
tutorial and the manual in the didactic sense (which
does not concern functioning and should not delay the
upcoming release...) Also I don't conceive the manual
as to big as such - on the contrary: the more
information available, the better.

Just propagate to have a second or third tutorial to ease
the next steps of the beginners (there are some tutorials
in the net which could be checked for that.)
