I've looked through some Emacs documentation and it is indeed the case
that ", which see." or "(which see)" is used in many places to make
reference to the documentation of a variable or function that has been
mentioned by name.  I'll just leave it at that and suggest it might be
discussed on an appropriate Emacs list if necessary.

Achim.
