Nice cleanups! Just a few comments:

Very minor point: you could just say "Remove, as these are now static."
It goes without saying that when one removes a prototype, one removes
its doc string as well.

Heh, this doc string started out with problems: first, that it existed
at all, since (until now) it duplicated the doc string in the header
file. But that's no longer a concern, since the header doc is going

The second problem is that it imprecisely said "DESCRIPTION" instead
of "*DESCRIPTION". Your new text is more precise, but now the doc
string is inconsistent. Can you fix up the previous occurrence too?

(I've decided not to comment on passive voice: "DESCRIPTION will
contain" instead of just "set *DESCRIPTION to". See how good I'm
being, not commenting on that?)

We've lost the doc string from props.h, so we shoul transfer it here.
(All functions should be documented, whether public, semi-public, or
