The cost in Pd is quite terrible compared to many other documentation 
systems because the pd file format is not diffable. This is in great part 
the fault of the pd patch editor itself. The day we have meaningful diffs, 
we can systematise the evolution of pd help file translations, as mistakes 
are corrected, as details are explained, and as new features are added.
