    I don't think we can force anyone to document something they write, as
    that would discourage people from submitting pieces of code. I don't think
    we sohuld be calling anyone idiots either. But *requesting* that if
    someone changes code, and the documentation then becomes out of date, then
    they somehow flag the documentation as such. Maybe there should be a file
    in linux/Documentation that lists the date/kernel version that each piece
    of documentation was written for.
