    Richard, can you clarify the meaning of the word manual?  Is any book
    a manual?

Such an absurd question is not entitled to an answer, but I will
clarify our policy.

I use "manual" and "documentation" synonymously.  The documentation
that our policy applies to includes everything that ought to be
included in the software package in order to document it clearly.

Where a programming language is involved, the introduction and
reference manual for the language are definitely a part of what the
documentation should cover.
