Bug#311624: dpkg: [manual] The interactive is of update-alternatives is not explained

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.27
Severity: minor

When running command:

  update-alternatives --config editor

There is (+) and (*) marks. The star-mark is implied from the promp
message that appears, but what is the purpose of (+) is left to
shrouds. No matter what item value is selected, the (+) stays where
it is.

Please document the marks and the behavior of the interactive
screen in the manual.
