Woah, seriously?  LM 3.1 is perfect for that.  Anyway, I'll leave
this for you.

No; I think the rest of LM 5 is going into the AU.  Makefiles: AU
without a doubt.  Suggestions and Errors: we could make a case in
both ways.  For me, it comes down to two things:
- people might want to look at Errors during their daily use,
  whereas theoretically the LM is for an initial-read only.
  (assuming people remember the overall info)
- AU is looking really lean once we kill AU 1 and 2, so this would
  give that manual more of a reason to exist.

Besides, "suggestions for writing files" totally _sounds_ like
"usage" information to me.  :)
