Could you put this info in the actual manual?  There's a real danger
we're going to start having an outdated manual where new features are
documented somewhere on the wiki and old ones in the html/pdf manual,
with no clear way for users to know where to look for stuff.

I'm open to discussing how to best handle this, but I think we should
try to use the wiki for what it  does best (collaborative,
community-maintained information and frequently evolving things), but
I still believe in the value of a solid, well-organized manual.
