** Register changes
*** All register commands can now show help with preview.
*** All interactive commands that read a register (`copy-to-register', etc.)
now display a temporary window after `register-preview-delay' seconds
that summarizes existing registers. To disable this, set that option to nil.
*** New command `C-x C-k x' (`kmacro-to-register') stores keyboard
