I can -- but now I'm wondering how many places it should get posted?
When it comes time to update it (for example to reflect instead
of xfree86, or maybe making it more general to include USB pointing
devices or brain wave receivers or whatever) I won't remember all the
places it's been posted....

And here I was concerned that I posted it in Users instead of Doc -- I
never imagined there were so many other options. Actually now that I
think of it I don't think I've even looked through the wiki.
