Since at least one person has misunderstood, could you elaborate a bit on
this? I know we've spoken (off-list) about this topic, but I recall it
being associated with things like devref, policy, et al. 

Basically what needs to happen with those is that they need to be dumped in
a big pile and have a lot of people go through and pick out the good bits
and reorganize them. I imagine this is no small task due to the breadth of
the docs in consideration.

Well, tabloids are more interesting than physics textbooks to the average
person, but I'd say they are also worthless. Go with dry. ;)
