Thanks, George.  I'll take a look at your patch.

I expect that we'll be able to go with #1, too.  I have more time available
to me now, and better understand the relationship between the .ent files and
the documentation.

As a note to other documentors, don't let the libs / ent stuff slow us
down.  Initial content is more important that the .ent and the libs stuff,
which can be cleaned up later.

Jani, it looks like you completed the "Debian" information of the
documentation for the Dapper cycle.  I will likely contact you off-list to
get more information about what we should be including in there.
