My note on dev@ ( has received no responses after
72 hours. I'm going to rather optimistically interpret this as "no preference, and we trust
the docs list to do the right thing."

docs/log-message-tags is starting to seem like the right place to put these docs. However,
there's the question of directory and file structure. I really don't want one enormous file,
but duplicating the source tree structure seems overkill. Somewhere in the middle? Suggestions?
