In retrospect the names were more than confusing.  They were
simply awful.   Thanks to Johannes, Drew and others I decided
to rename the directives:

    "use-url" becomes "include",
    "use-section" becomes "use",
    "bind-section" becomes "reuse",
    "bind-url" becomes "use-include",
    "section" becomes "using",
    "parameter" becomes "require"

These names are much less stupid (except for
use-include, but I couldn't come up with anything

Thanks Johannes and Drew!  There is a new release
with the new directive names linked from


(What was I thinking?)
