I am not interested in adding a build target that requires (a
patched version of) wkhtmltopdf at all, but the earlier parts of
this series do look like good clean-ups and useful conversions to
asciidoc, regardless of which tool we end up deciding to use to
produce the final output.  Thanks for working on this.

I (and other people who wrote documentation, I suspect, as well)
feel somewhat offended by the word "fix" here and there in the
message in commits that turn files that so far have been plain text
into asciidoc, though ;-).
