Nobody's going to want to read through all of birth.txt to find the three sentences that have changed.

Obviously if the docs say that dwarves can sense treasure, then you can't reasonably claim that treasure sense isn't documented. But just because you document something doesn't mean that people are going to find out about it. The information isn't as discoverable as it could be.
That's a fair point - and the reality is that hardly anybody reads docs more than once, ever - I accept that. I'm just keen to get the message out that the docs have changed quite a lot - even birth.txt has more than just a few new sentences. (Obviously it will still be familiar if you have read it before though.)

Damn, now you're making me be reasonable.

I'm sorry for fomenting angst solely for the purpose of having a (gratuitous, smart-arse) go at Magnate.

And I'm sorry for overshadowing the issue.

And I'm sorry that this post is just for the sake of staying ahead of Magnate in the postcount.
