Yes, the aim of the documentation is to have even the smallest detail
correct, as small mistakes quickly add up and eventually cause new users to
give up.

A valid suggestion.  I have posted new versions of the User's Guide with the
correction.  Thank you for pointing it out.

The script defaults to 'n' when you run it, and I had originally thought
that I should leave it as 'n', as some people may become confused when they
see that the script output in the manual differs from what they see on the
screen.  However, it seems that more people are getting confused and
entering 'n' as their choice, thus aborting the whole process.
