Since you feel so strongly about it, I will move it to a seperate module. This
is certainly more flexible than what I have done, so I can't see why anyone

For that reason, I'd be grateful if people would _NOT_ modify the docs until I
have completed the move (which I am starting right now).

And, no, I haven't got time for all this. Sigh.
