Well, adding anchors to the MT document should not be a big deal...

:-) O.k.

I am very unhappy having references to the 2004 Primer. That could become very disturbing; I would prefer (just as for the other documents) that the new Primer document would make the 2004 version obsolete and it should be 'hidden'.

I see two possibilities: either you remove any kind of reference (ie, remove that sentence altogether) or copy the collection example into the new primer and refer to that one.

See my previous comment: I do not think we should refer to the 2004 Primer.

Works for me.

As said: knit-picking. Drop the comment:-)
