The veto is only (as I understood it) until there is something to
replace it with. That is, something is better than nothing. We have
something, and we can copy that over to the 1.3 tree if desired.

I gather from other comments that a different location and/or name would
be desirable for this. Seems, however, if we are dividing up the
documentation into subdirectories in a rational fashion, we may end up
needing a template per directory - one for mod/, one for howto, etc.
But, since we're not really sticking to any particular division of
content into subdirs, that may be overkill. If all we're talking about
is a template for module documentation, then just renaming the template
file to TEMPLATE.html or similar may be sufficient.

Hmm. I seem to be rambling again. I'll shut up now.
