Just send a diff, I will check it in. No guarantees though, that it will
be included on the potao CDs, since the boot-floppies for them may be the
ones which were uploaded last week. But it will be in the next boot-floppies
version, and, if Nick integrates it, and somebody else includes it in the
main docs, it will be in the online version. But please don't write prosa,
look at the full docs first, before you try to write whats allreay written.
