Description Phil Edwards 2004-09-24 17:02:46 UTC
1)  There is no description of what machine modes are.  Even a reference to the
internals manual would be enough.

2)  The manual's output lists function attributes, /then/ attribute syntax, then
some completely unrelated stuff, then type attributes.  These sections should be
rearranged in the texinfo source.

I plan on doing this sometime before I die, but wanted an open bug to remind me.
 It's assigned to me, but anybody should feel free to beat me to it.
