Ah ha.  I see the problem.  You have required "../common.ss"
for-label, but you have declared your documentation to describe
(planet orseau/lazy-doc:1:0/common).  Scribble is not smart enough to
know those are the same thing.  You want to use a planet path for both

I also recommend you replace the require spec with (this-packagin-in
common), and the defmodule with (defmodule/this-package common).  Both
bindings are available from (planet cce/scheme), and you can find the
online documentation here:


(It only occurs to me now that I should have those documented in the
same section for just this reason... oops.)

If you use them, your code will continue to work even when you release
1.1, 1.2, 2.0, etc., without having to update the version numbers.
