indeed "!"  -- my fault.

Note that at the R sprint 2023,  printCoefmat() has been one of
the small topics

on which we hoped to make progress -- also prompted by your (Shu
Fai) good question, on this list,

on how to improve the details of the  `zap.ind` setting.

Whereas the R sprint project lead to some investigations, but
unfortunately did not yet lead to improve the code generally
... even though we *did* try some changes, but IIRC they all had
their flaws and hence were not good enough to warrant a change
of code.

So, for now, we should at least change that part of the help
page -- finally!
