Sure. On the other hand, I don't want the information
to just be stripped off. I put it so it could be read.
I'd like the information to be reorganized. --
But nobody owes anybody the organization of it.
So people like I, Kyle, etc., who are interested in this information
are are the ones who ought to organize the information intelligibly.
Now, I appreciate it that those who strip information, when they do,
leave a tag so that we may recover information from the old pages.

Well, if it's easy to at least put cross-partition pointers,
and if possible, to move pages across border,
then it should be ok, shouldn't it?

That would be simplest. Let's start this way.
