FWIW, I review most doc patches as they come into the commits mailing list.

Also, since the docs are built regularly, and problems are usually fixed
very fast, I don't want anybody to hold back a patch because of docs only.

Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
