Re: Status of bikeshed

I'll look in to it.  Since the spec source will be in the new file,
the history there shouldn't matter.  But we probably do want index.html to
get squashed.  Possibly would work by just doing a normal merge commit?

I'll be sure to tag the repo before doing the merge so we can still go back
and see what it looked like before bikeshed in case some strangeness

I tried fairly hard to preserve all text, even when there were obvious
typos.  But in fixing bikeshed errors, I did convert some stuff to be
actual links instead of code and vars and other markup.  I think the result
isn't too much different from the current version.
