Hey, don't be such a downer! When in doubt, interpret
information to *your* advantage :)

I think the Gnus manual is great! 99% is serious. I
this particular case, it wasn't clear. It would have
been so cool if it had miraculously been true, because
then I would have asked every hacker I ever met what
the biggest program is, and I don't think a single one
would have been, well, "right".

One of the best things about the Gnus manual is that it
is available in PDF so I can print it on someone else's
printer so I can spare my eyes and (nonexistent)
money. Which brings me to... are there any other Emacs
books available that way? I have the Emacs manual
(published version) but that was version 18 or so. Gnus
is not in that book, and a lot more is not either, I
suspect.
