Is this the right thing?  It isn't what I understood and not what I
did with the packages I've done recently.

What I've done meant understanding enough to distil typically a
paragraph or so for the manual.  I sometimes ended up fixing things in
packages as a consequence.  (I normally have to re-write my first
attempt to follow rms style better...)  In many cases, a short
description in the manual plus a good Custom group should be enough to
use a package.

Anyway, please do contribute!  If you're not good at writing English,
someone may be able to proofread for you.
