  If you'd like to make it a patch to the standard documentation, I'm
sure many people would be incredible grateful, including myself.  The
time I have available to extend the documentation in all the ways that 
are requested seems a bit fleeting at the moment.
  Seriously, if anyone would like to extend the standard documents,
I'll be glad to lend a hand with the markup.  If you write the
content, I'll accept it as text if I need to!
