I don't think this works.  Aside from the illogicality, what will you do
when somebody works a bit harder on one of the modules that have "short"
documentation?  Push it over into the other appendix in the next
release?  Ugh.

Unlike Bruce, I don't have any problem with pushing them all up to
chapter level.  One point of such a change is to make them more visible,
so I do not see it as a "disadvantage" that they'd all be visible in the
TOC --- more the opposite.
