Of course the numbers as well as comments on the inactive or unused
entries could be added, just as they are today. I had also considered
the possiblility of adding the system call proto type as a parameter
in the macro. This could lead to a rather complete one entry
description of the call.

Still, it seems to not be in favor, so I will let it drop.
