I'm strongly against it.  If the main reason why we don't
start 21.4 pretest from the trunk is that we have not yet
checked manuals, the same can be said for 21.3.  It seems
that most of documentation problems reported exist in 21.3
(thus not specific to changes done after 21.3).  It's
perhaps because we didn't checked the manual as precisely as
what Luc is now doing.

In other words, if we decide to fix pre-21.3 documentation
bugs later and concentrate on checking manuals only for
after-21.3 changes, I think we can start 21.4 preteset much
earlier.  I've just checked NEWS entries after 21.3.  There
are 629 entries and 328 of them don't have "+++" nor "---"
flags.  Who put flags on them how and when?  May I put flags
on mule-related changes (of course by updating manuals if
