Cleaning up Chicago styles #194

I'm just adding some minor changes to Chicago styles. For the most part that's relatively painless, since the different styles are sufficiently similar so I can just implement this twice or thrice and do the rest with Meld and a couple of clicks.
I'm trying to figure out what two styles are doing:

  1. the quick copy style: It's been around for a long time, but I don't know what it does exactly. Is there any reason not to just remove the bibliography from the Full note style and use that? That would make maintenance much easier. If we don't want to do that I'd vote to remove the style.
  2. The "dated-note" style - does anyone know what this is based on? I can't find anything like it in the CMoS. It also, IMHO, doesn't make much sense to have a style with author-date citations (which this is - though in footnotes), but dates at the end of the citation. If we're going to make that style up, I'd use the current citation section and use the bibliography from the author-date version. Thoughts?

thanks Rintze.
Not sure what to do with either of these. I haven't seen turkeyphant
on the forum forever, so tracking down the source or usage of this is
going to be hard.

The quick copy style allows for notes and subsequent citations - I
guess that can be useful. It's also a mess to maintain.

You can just remove them and see if people complain.
