apropos split didn't find cmd-1 because its name and documentation
do not contain 'split' .. it is called aquamacs-delete-other-windows.
the documentation for command aquamacs-split-window-vertically
does not mention its inverse.  so it is possible to miss it.

^x-1 will disappear a help buffer without deleting the tabs.

the word "tab" also pertains to the tab character, so apropos tab
finds a mixture of items.

still like the feature, thanks.
