Please document (in doc strings and (if mentioned there) in Elisp
manual) that `with-output-to-temp-buffer' and the like have no undo.

This applies to anything that sets `buffer-undo-list' to t and leaves it
with that value.  It applies to function `temp-buffer-window-setup' and
macros and functions that use it.

I've now done this in Emacs 29.

(These macros all have unfortunate names -- they sound much more general
than they are, like variations on `with-temp-buffer', but have much more
specific use cases.)

Thanks.

Agreed.  Hysterical raisins.

See this:

which in turn points to bugs 8368, 17109,
17397, 17146 (and 16038)
