Keywords: general, variables
getnotes(x) returns the "notes" attached to variable x, if any, as a
CHARACTER scalar or vector.  If x has no notes, the result is NULL and a
warning message is printed.

getnotes(x,silent:T) does the same, except when x does not have any
attached notes, the warning message is suppressed.

x can be any type of variable, including structure, macro and GRAPH.
