 * Texinfo, not DocBook since late 2004. :) We're fast on things
   like this.

 * HTML available for download, not part of the normal binary

 * Mention BUGS.

 * PURIFY doesn't happen on x86 Darwins, and I've never had to touch
   the limits on PPC either -- so delete that bit.

-for Darwin:
- PURIFY (which can be used alone but is also used by the system when
- saving a new core) uses more stack than the default limit on MacOS
- X.2. Therefore, in order to get PURIFY to work reliably, you need
- to increase the limit, with e.g.
- limit stack 8192 # for the default shell, tcsh
- ulimit -s 8192 # for bash
- before running SBCL. This is also necessary when building the system
- from sources, as part of the build process involves saving a new core.
