tricky and totally undocumented.  Documenting it
carefully will almost certainly throw up bugs and
inconsistencies.  These will need developer effort
to fix before we can think of adding extensions and
new commands.

That said, anything that can be done with a simple
encapsulation of overrides in a variable, much like
the changes introduced during GDP, should be done,
of course.

That's all I meant.

And it's not *too* hard convert the new documentation from
main body to selected snippets. It would even suffice (IMO) to have
documentation that uses tweaks be prefaced with a comment

@c TODO -- make command or move to Selected Snippets

to make it easy to update in the future.

I'm happy to agree with that.
