OK, got it. But maybe the current location of, for instance, "ess-r-var"
can be given somewhere in the manual? I guess "ess-r-var" can be of
intrinsic interest, not just historic interest (I find what it does rather
neat).  (I understand this is a minor point; what happened to me was that
I found the description of what "ess-r-var", and then I tried to use it
via essa-r).
