Given FX's review, I take that this is fine from the Fortran side, so
let me only add some feedback from the documentation side.

Would you mind splitting this line?

As for removing files, I believe we should provide redirects for those.
Would you mind proposing such redirects (perhaps all to the main GNU
Fortran page) as additions to htdocs/.htaccess in our wwwdocs CVS repo?

As far as I can see, you do not have CVS write access.  If you could
provide an updated patch, I'll be glad to apply that for you and address
any potential markup or other issues I encounter.
