Everything not commented on was added.

Rather than plug stampede, I changed the claim to say "first major

I dunno.  Maybe it's true if installing from hamm...

Wow, I didn't know that.

Thanks for the kind words and the many corrections.  They are now
integrated.  I would have done them sooner but they weren't patches.
