But we have to be careful to not exaggerate; to not raise false hopes.

That's what I have done.

Uhm, yes...

Not yet ready.  (And this wasn't a GSoC project, even.)

Ack -- these can be merged.

A (stable / usable / ...) procfs implementation is very nice of course,
but it's not interesting per se -- it's only procfs.  Nothing fundamental
changed for the other ones, too -- apart from having Manual making them
usable again, of course.

We need a publication-ready text by this Wednesday; so please hurry up if
you want to incorporate any changes.  I didn't have any time in the last
two weeks.

Please send changes against these sources:

    $ cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.savannah.gnu.org:/sources/womb co 

If you don't know how to talk texinfo, free-form text format is fine,
too, and either I or Karl will make it texinfo-conforming later on.  I
will have some time this week to review proposed changes and discuss
