Wait, weren't you just telling us about how you set up your system to be
more SysV-like? And now you're saying you don't want to do things the
SysV way... hmmm :-)
The fact that the is precedent in SVR3 makes my case stronger, not

The basis for section 7 is stuff that doesn't deserve it'sown place. I
suggest that how-to's and such do deserve their own place. Further, having
a subcategory of misc seems logically wrong to me. Shouldn't misc be a
leaf by definition?
