Either you send the patch, or I will send the patch, when I have time,
with no credit to you. I'm not an expert on all of the future plans for
the documentation, The only think I know is where the file is now, and
that the file is perfectly readable in its rst format, and thus it seems
quite all right to reference it. If the situation change in the future,
we can have another patch in the future.
