O'Reilly made a bunch of edits without telling us, and we had to
manually discover them and recreate them in the source. It was ugly.
:-(

After the fact, it looks like they're able to give us some kind of
'batch' description of the changes, but only if we push them a bit.
There's been a bit of discussion about it, but we never pushed for it
very hard.

In the meantime, feel free to manually port stuff from hardcopy to
source, if you notice things...
