Yes, that suggestion is ok. It doesn't change much, but it makes it easier for
people to find about the file status. However, identifying exact code
sequences is rather difficult, because (as you have probably read) nothing
looks as in the JRD version, and many small pieces of old code are mixed with
larger pieces of new code. As part of the latest changes, more code has been
rewritten and moved out of the files in question, so hopefully the problem
will vanish some time in the future.
