Yes, and I checked the new doc at that time and then replied, saying:

  The manual still says that read-file-name argument
  REQUIRE-MATCH has the same meaning as for `completing-read'.
  And it says nothing about the special values for this argument
  and the new behavior they effect.

Was I mistaken then? It's possible that I was looking at the wrong thing. You
did not reply, however, to let me know, if I was wrong.

Yes, it's a little extra work, but it might have saved both of us some effort in
the long run.

At any rate, I probably wouldn't have known to find the references in the
Changelog - now I know better. But I did check the latest CVS doc at the time
and wrote my reply that AFAICT the part I cited was unchanged. (Again, perhaps I
was looking at the wrong thing.)
