I looked at the output of;





For each output displayed I took a closer look at the symbols I haven't
herd  of before
(ie.  ?ArgumentCountQ).   I am very familiar with the Kernel so I had a 
pretty good idea which features are officially documented.  I spent
about  1/2 hour a day on this for about ten days.

I think one of the developers once said the undocumented features are
not  completely tested, and may be removed or changed in future
versions.  Keep  that in mind, and use them at your own risk.
