And btw, I very much doubt that the (apparent) vision of having all,
or even most of the documentation available in a single format is
practically attainable anyway.  Unless that format is HTML or some

that format, and Web browsers are ubiquitous.  Why should we believe
that the Dash/Zeal docset format will win the world?
