Being in the role of an occasional bypasser in src/Doc, the lack of any
apparent »standard scheme« to glimpse from produces more diversion over
time.  E.g. I myself attributed some official status to the session name
»ZF-Logics« which was just an historical accident.  You might call this
an instance of the broken-window syndrome.
