;;; Commentary:

;;; Code:

;; Docstrings in this file should, where reasonable, follow the
;; conventions described in bindings.el, so that they get put in the
;; DOC file rather than in memory.

The optional argument KEEP is a list of directories to retain even if

case, the directory of Info files that come with Emacs should be
