Also, this text is inconsistent. On the one hand, it talks about SUSv2,
then it talks about the "sixth revision" and the "seventh revision",
without explaining what those terms mean. Best to rewrite using 
"Single Unix Specification, @w{version 3}" and
"Single Unix Specification, @w{version 4}", I'd say.
