Your "very small patch" actually had quite a bit of unrelated noise is, thus
wasn't as small as it could have been.  But the noise (whitespace reductions
throughout the XML file) was useful, so I committed those bits of your patch
first in r4117, then committed the core of the patch in r4118 (with minor
phrasing edits).

Thanks, Thorsten!
