Thanks for your comments. I'll reply in more detail later (tomorrow?)
but there are a couple of points that I don't follow at all and so
would appreciate further explanation...

Good point - I have no idea whether/how this would work.

This is the main thing that I don't get. Could you explain a little
more? Who and when would call `snarf-docs', and what would
`filter-docs' do in this proposal?
