I did use the word "commendable" in there somewhere... ;-) These days,
I usually withhold my more blatant and gushing enthusiasm until such
time as additional folks step up to help whip these documents into
fighting shape. Looking at our contributor list, I see a lot of

then were never seen again.
Would you be interested in joining in the effort? Your enthusiasm
could be contagious if followed up with some elbow grease! :-)
