Of course `C-h o RET` works OK most of the time, but it's not the same
as having the var/fun name highlighted as a link that you can click.
We could even have a way to dynamically bring the docstring into the
Info manual (the same external-refs that allows an ad-hoc script to add
the docstrings to the printed version could be used to dynamically
insert the docstring into the *Info* buffer on-the-fly).
