Severity: wishlist

Any objections to adding a convenience alias `shortdoc' for
`shortdoc-display-group'?

Thanks, I recall recently browsing the completions of `M-x shortdoc-*'
to guess the entry point that displays all groups.  It would be
nice if `shortdoc' displayed a list of available groups -
in the buffer, without requiring the minibuffer and completion.
Then typing RET on the list of groups could call `shortdoc-display-group'.

Makes sense to me -- now done in Emacs 29.

Hm...  I think it's more convenient just to TAB than moving around in a
buffer with links, really.  But if somebody feels that it would be an
improvement, I won't object.
