The above points are all good ones, but I'd still like to see user
documentation for the current approach, even if we'll change it a bit
before we publish it.  If Steven comes up with the documentation now,
we can install it but ifdef it out so that ordinary users won't see it
until after 2.58 comes out.  That way, we don't have to worry so much
about inhibiting Steve from generating the documentation.

(Not to put any pressure on you, Steven....  I'm just trying to make
it easier for you to make further contributions.)
