There's nothing wrong with using "that" in these contexts, it's pretty
standard English usage, and we use it all over the place in the Emacs
documentation.

So please submit a patch without those parts.

Also, "X Window" is incorrect; use "X Window system" or just "X"
instead.

This part:

replaces a recipe with an entirely different one.  Why not keep both?

Thanks.
