Don't worry, as soon as my thesis is gone for good, I will have time to
finally make good use of the new features in Sphinx trunk, among them
the often request commenting and patching feature.

The result -- I dare say -- will be the best of both worlds: no unsupervised
changes in content, but the possibility of instant feedback for readers.
We'll require some more people wrangling the amount of information we get,
but I've got quite a few requests from the community asking for things to
help the docs; now I have to refer them to the tracker, which can be less
than satisfying, then I can recruit them into the comment-handling team.


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.
