    Chong Yidong authored
    * lisp/bindings.el: Remove explicit help-echo from format-mode-line.
    (mode-line-front-space, mode-line-end-spaces)
    (mode-line-misc-info): New variables.
    (mode-line-modes, mode-line-position): Move the default value to
    the variable definition.
    (mode-line-default-help-echo): New defcustom.
    
    * src/buffer.c (buffer_local_value_1): New function, split from
    Fbuffer_local_value; can return Qunbound.
    (Fbuffer_local_value): Use it.
    (Vmode_line_format): Docstring tweaks.
    
    * src/xdisp.c (calc_pixel_width_or_height): Use Fbuffer_local_value.
    (note_mode_line_or_margin_highlight): If there is no help echo,
    use mode-line-default-help-echo.  Handle the case where the mouse
    position is past the end of the mode line string.
    
    * doc/lispref/modes.texi (Mode Line Data): Use "mode line construct"
    terminology for consistency.
