you're correct, and pardon my nervous attitude :-)
I usually announce releases on this mailing list, so I presumed
that users of this mailing list were aware of the fact that the PPM
distribution is only there to help people without a C compiler,
not to provide a complete package.
the documentation is not stable at this point, so it can't be
added to the PPM (would leave a mess of half-written files here
and there with every new release :-).
