[DOC-SIG] Library reference SGML plan / size of supplied docu

Sorry, "we" in this context meant "RedBox Technologies". I was
referring to the factors that affected our decision for an application
distributed on CD. Apologies if this has resulted in a red herring.
For Python I think that PostScript is better (produces, to my eye,
better quality printouts).
