Subject Re: Outline parent with P key
Date Sun, 08 Feb 2015 09:49:04 GMT
Indeed, the P isn't mentioned in the spec. This has been there since 
2008, and we don't have the prior history. Probably somebody copied code 
from elsewhere. I'll remove it.
(I think I saw both elsewhere in a PDF, probably annotations)

Re: unit tests, better start small, to see that you don't do work that 
isn't used, and that you get a feeling about what is accepted.
