i'm a little confused. aren't these the docs that are published by
o'reilly in their 4.4bsd series? and if they're at&t proprietary, why
do other bsd's (freebsd, bsdi) have some of them and some other
somewhat different sets?
from looking at the directory structures over time, it looks like they
were there and were later removed, or at least, were never put there
and the empty directories were pruned. examples of what has
disappeared or what is present on other systems (which confuses me):
usd/13.viref all disappeared (were in 1.2, not in -current)
smm/10.named in freebsd-2.2.2, never in netbsd?
usd/11.vitut in bsd/os-2.1, never in netbsd?
usd/10.exref in freebsd-2.2.2...
usd/12.exref in bsd/os-2.1...
never anywhere in netbsd??
