in order to create a new book, the user currently must have 'administer
nodes' permission. this is a bit too broad. this patch introduces a
'create books' permission and improves the help text a bit.

this patch is old now, with new menu system. functionality still needed.

Updated patch. It is far less risky to grant 'create new book' as
opposed to 'administer nodes'.

+1, this makes sense as a distinct permission.  Should the permission
test however be if (user_access('create books') ||
user_access('administer nodes')) {, instead of if
(user_access('administer nodes')) {, on the assumption that 'administer
nodes' includes creating books?

Makes sense to me, but the patch is outdated.
