Mistakes are a fact of life, no excuses necessary. What is hard to
understand is not being able to change a few characters in the
documentation, while developers continue to fall into this silly

Is the doc generated from the code? Doesn't look like it.

Of course, this documentation bug - and the FAQ about getting a user's
email address, which could also be laid to rest by improving the doc -
keeps this list alive, so I shouldn't complain.
