Hi Vladimir,

Just browsing the patch, and when I saw `w3m-fb-mode', I decided to look
it up, because I wasn't aware of it. The documentation includes a
warning, "Setting this variable directly does not take effect; either
customize it (see the info node ‘Easy Customization’) or call the
function ‘w3m-fb-mode’."

So, is the documentation wrong?
