If somebody submits a good recipe about it, I'll be overjoyed to add it
(not sure what chapter -- 'files'?  'system administration'?  'programs
about programs'? -- ah well, I'll find a spot!-).

In the 2nd Edition of the _Nutshell_, when THAT comes (don't hold your
breath!-), I'll write it up just like I will for all the new delights
since 2.2 -- but for the Cookbook I'm supposed to use recipes that
people do submit to the online cookbook site... OK, I and my co-editors
_do_ perform a lot of editing and merging, and occasionally do add a
recipe or three, but mostly it IS the book you all have written, with
over a hundred authors covering the subjects THEY think matter...
