Well, no one ever told me a site of mine looks hi-tech... I'll take that
as a big complimente 8^).

Your point is better than mine.

So, manual authors, any problem if some manual snippets and fragments of
text pass into the public domain? I think that this is legally different
from the manual as a whole, which would remain GFDL'd. We probably do
not need an actual formal agreement, just an OK.

BTW: Hurray for Yuval Harel who officially added the first externally
contributed snippet 8^).
