> The manual author has consistently used the word 'faculty' to mean 'factorial',
> but it doesn't.  This doesn't break any code, but is kind of distracting (if not
> downright embarrassing), and might even slow down some new readers, who have to
> think about it long enough to realize it's a mistake and not some obscure
> mathematical jargon they haven't caught up with!
