If this is your interpretation of what NEWS says, then we must modify
that text to be less ambiguous.  "+++" means the doc strings AND the
manuals have been updated, "---" means the doc string WITHOUT manuals
were updated.

These markers are there for when we are close to releasing a new major
version, and need to make sure everything that needs to be in the
manuals is in the manuals.  It therefore makes no sense to mark by
"+++" changes that do not need to be in the manuals, because that
sends the wrong signal.
