That's fine, but what I said about browsing still applies to Help
Desk: the Manuals page simply lists the names of collections with
doc.txt files, but it would be a lot more useful if it also included a
short description of each collection.

Umm, wait, it looks like such a thing already exists: the "blurb"
binding in a collection's info.ss is used in the Software -> Installed
Components section of the help desk.  So I guess that's where I should
have been looking first, instead of the Software -> Manuals section
(which appears on the front page).  Fascinating...

(Is there a URL-like way to refer to a particular page in Help Desk?)
