Extents
*******

   An "extent" is a region of text (a start position and an end
position) that is displayed in a particular face and can have certain
other properties such as being read-only.  Extents can overlap each
other.  Lucid Emacs efficiently handles buffers with large numbers of
extents in them.

 - Function: extentp OBJECT
     This returns `t' if OBJECT is an extent.
