Well, we could drop the manual entirely :-). But until we do, we should 
maintain it.

Sure, but that's not normally the issue here, as that sort of disagreement
happens with code as well as with documentation. In other words, the issue is
rarely about areas where multiple people might work on documentation and
disagree about what should go into it; it's more commonly about areas where
nobody updated the documentation even though it obviously became out of date.

Yes, that's a price we'd have to pay. I hope it wouldn't be much of a problem in
