You aren't supposed to read REST documentation files - as opposed to
kerneldoc comments in the C source - any more than you read HTML.

[ Exactly what should or should not be in C source kerneldoc is another
matter. ]

Developers are used to reading plain ol' text files for quick reference.
But there is no make target to generate the text files.

Can we create a method to build text *output* files?
