Michelle, we may as well take this back to documentation. Myself and
Kieran have done this over time, generally without pre-notifying
maintainers, etc.. e.g. look at Event, which has manual links to
dependent modules, etc. Although, looking at it, I took out the
"recommended" link to flexinode...and replace it to one for CCK.

If it doesn't involve issues, it's usually best to keep it off the dev list :P
