thanks for the history.
I support that change, if and only if we can combine this one and other
boilerplate changes into a single bigger change, with an easy to detect
That being said, if the tools are supposed to be able to re-create
historical documents (and so far they do), they'll have to deal with the
current format as well.
Thus, again, how about making changes to the boilerplate if and only if
the tools are in place to produce them?
Best regards, Julian
