Hexl-mode docstring specify "\<hexl-mode-map>" in its first line, this
to specify some keybinding related to this map at end, as a result the
documentation command returns a three line string, the first line beeing
a blank line until hexl.el is loaded.  I think docstrings generally
should not have this specification in their first line.

Customary is to put it directly before the (first) keymap reference.

So we don't want an empty line at the beginning of a doc string, but
are okay with having it farther into the doc string?  Any particular
reason why?  Or what am I missing?

Yes, this would avoid loading the whole file just for having the first line of
the documentation.

Actually, (documentation 'hexl-mode) returns:

"\nUses keymap `hexl-mode-map', which is not currently defined.\nA mode for editing binary files in hex dump format..."

But once it is loaded:

"A mode for editing binary files in hex dump format..."

I think it is a good practice to specify keymap just when needed as
specified in the manual:

   • In documentation strings for a major mode, you will want to refer
     to the key bindings of that mode’s local map, rather than global
     ones.  Therefore, use the construct ‘\\<...>’ once in the
     documentation string to specify which key map to use.  Do this
     before the first use of ‘\\[...]’.  The text inside the ‘\\<...>’
     should be the name of the variable containing the local keymap for
     the major mode.

Does the patch below gives any better results?  It doesn't look better
to me: the "Uses keymap..." blurb gets in the way and makes the
documentation text wrong.  And it will happen regardless of where you
stuff the \\<..> thing, just in different places of the test.  It
looks like this feature was not meant to be used with libraries that
aren't loaded, or maybe the intent is to use the RAW argument in those
cases.

Stefan, why do we inject this ugly blurb into the text we return when
the library is not loaded? why not simply return the same as RAW does
in those cases?

C-h f hexl-mode triggers the autoload and uses the substituted doc
string (thus no blurb).  M-x apropos hexl-mode does not trigger the
autoload and uses the substituted first line of the doc string
(including the blurb if present).  C-h a hexl-mode uses the first line
of the raw doc string.

Good question.  AFAIK this predates me, so we'd have to ask Richard.
Maybe \<hexl-mode-map> should simply never expand to anything else than the
empty string.

Thanks, but I thought the complaint was about what the 'documentation'
function returns.  That doesn't change much depending on where the
\\<..> thing is.  Help commands that only show the first line will, of
course, depend on where we have the \\<..> thing.

Maybe.  But meanwhile, the best I can suggest is this:

I fixed the first two, but IMO they are not really relevant to this
bug: the functions are not autoloaded, so you don't see that "Uses a
keymap..." blurb.

As for the other two: they are in Org, so I leave it to the Org
developers to DTRT.

Sure, but it is much cleaner like this, thanks.

`org-use-fast-todo-selection' and `org-babel-no-eval-on-ctrl-c-ctrl-c'
are also not autoloaded.

And I do not see how to use the proposed approach to them - they both
use \[...] in the first line of the docstring:

(defcustom org-babel-no-eval-on-ctrl-c-ctrl-c nil
  "\\<org-mode-map>\
Remove code block evaluation from the `\\[org-ctrl-c-ctrl-c]' key binding."

(defcustom org-use-fast-todo-selection 'auto
  "\\<org-mode-map>\
Non-nil means use the fast todo selection scheme with `\\[org-todo]'.

Moving \<org-mode-map> to the second line is thus not an option.

The reference to the map should not be in the middle of a sentence.

Why?  It's just a marker.

Because when it's expanded, it produces a complete sentence.

Maybe the better fix is to change \<...> so that the extra "\n...\n"
sentence gets added at a more appropriate place rather thn right where
the \<...> was encountered.

What is "the more appropriate place", and how will you find it, given
that some doc strings are auto-generated, either in part or in full?

But that again could be in the middle of a sentence.

Shouldn't we look for the end of the sentence, and insert after that
instead?  Or what am I missing?

It could.

I don't believe in the ability of machines to find the end of
a sentence. 🙂
