I notice that pgaccess' help files contain a lot of out-of-date quotes
from the primary documentation files.  This is not good.

It looks like these files were once quasi-automatically generated from
the main files.  Any chance of getting that process put into place
fully automatically?  If not, frankly I'd vote for ripping the pgaccess
help facility out altogether: better people should have to go look at
the real docs than that they should have convenient instant access to
misinformation.
