Discussion and Comments

I'm not particularly worried about tickadj and timetrim. Depending on how things go, we may want to use the time at the end of this effort to make sure that AutoGen contains the parts of this project that it needs, hopefully minimizing the amount of support files that we need to provide to AutoGen to handle the documentation.

Kapila, we'll also want to go over the list in GNUAutoGenConversion to make sure we got everything.
