Yes, that was a random push, sorry! But the good thing in a vcs is that one
can always modify and go back.

Maybe once we have Perl Packages. I do not want to create too many sublevels.
Or we just create a separate section Perl Packages, depending on whether we
write essentially the same thing or not.

No, since @xref creates text starting by "See", so is only suitable for the
beginning of a sentence. (But the info rendering is different from the pdf,
with which I am working mainly.)

This also gives strange output with an additional "see".

Okay for the line break (which does not change anything in pdf).

Okay. I suppose this also means that the period at the end of a sentence
is not allowed to fall at the end of an input line? So
"The weather is nice.
It is raining."

needs to become, for instance:
"The weather is
nice.  It is raining."?

Since there have not been any objections on the content of the guidelines,
maybe you could push Python 3 following this rule, Cyril? I am curious
whether all our packages will survive the switch to Python 3...
