Severity: wishlist

Provide a command `Info-goto-emacs-variable-node', bound to `C-h V',
that be to variables as `Info-goto-emacs-command-node' (bound to `C-h
F') is to commands.

That is: `C-h V search-whitespace-regexp' would take me to the info
node "(emacs) Special Isearch", where this variable is explained.

This would be a useful feature, and would fit quite well in the
current scheme of help commands (`C-h f/F' for commands; `C-h k/K' for
keys; and now `C-h v/V' for variables).
