Restarted from the first email to avoid a quoting mess. I attached the
final patch that would basically add the "Bugfix checklist" section before
"see also" on each module's page. I wanted to restrict the scope of this
patch to the places in which occasional users will benefit more rather than
adding it to the whole documentation.

Christophe, André, Rich: if you want to review the patch it would be really
great. If anybody feels very strong against it I'll drop it.
