Likewise (except I didn't even rebind it, I just use M-x apropos); there are
enough times when I'm not sure whether toggling some magic variable is
sufficient to effect some behavior or a function call is needed; sometimes the
same symbol is both. It's usually faster to apropos everything in the first
place. And after a while there's not much distinction between commands and
functions when you can use defadvice to give anything you use regularly an
interactive spec if it doesn't have one already.
