The "patches" list is the only one without that restriction...

Great! These all look good. Please do *not* make more updates to any
sgml/ref/*.sgml files until I've worked through them to do a final
merge of the old man pages. Since I'm reading them all to do the
merge, I'm making some fixes as I go, and these are likely to conflict
with work you would do. I'm hoping to be finished in a few days, but
for a few pages it goes slowly.

That's not a good feature...

It might be possible in the future. At the moment, I can't do much in
the way of formatting style adjustments because of small glitches in
the way Applix reads the RTF file I generate from the sgml. But I hope
to talk to Applix about that soon.
Thanks again for the great patches!
