i've amended the heading more precisely to reflect possible cases.

i think your preference rests on rather unusual circumstances ...

ok, that's a valid point: i've tidied that up.

no, that's just going to leave the current mess till 2-8-2.
however, i will create another `index' document,
incl the search links & whatever seems useful in the default `index':
it too can be added to the new release: check later today (hopefully).
