AARRGGHH.  I am so screwed.  I have been working on a scheme that relies on
tracking every change.  And as everyone knows there is normally no way to
find out what changed in a doc.  I am going to have to add a history of
changes to each doc which it not only wasteful, but a pain to implement.

Thanks for taking the trouble to give me bad news.
