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...
