+ " The only difficult quickfix command to handle is :lhelpgrep, because it
+ " uses the location list not for the current window but for a :help window,
+ " creating a new one if necessary. Worse, that window creation doesn't
+ " happen until *after* this event has fired, so we have to defer the
+ " location list opening with a dynamic autocommand that self-destructs.
+ if a:command ==# 'lhelpgrep'
+ " Expect a new window to pop up after this event has finished; hook into
+ " it to check its location and the presence of a location list, and open
+ " it up if so; then remove the hook
