I didn't think it was so important at the time I rewrote the Windows
sections of the manual.  I might add it now, but it's still unclear to
me how it would have helped you if it were there.  Did you search the
manual and the doc strings when you were looking for a solution to
your problem, and if you did, what did you search for, i.e. what
search strings and/or regexps did you use for the search?

There's no need, I will add the necessary docs if I understand how it
would have helped you.

CVS will merge files for you automagically.
