Oh; maybe I just didn't notice.

Yes. Ouch.

The easiest thing I can think of is: for each section that
gets filtered out, keep a stub that's just a heading
and some sort of note a la "for details, see the full spec".

I'm not sure how much work it is to do that... so far
all I've done is play with command line args on anolis
and . (Well, I did embellish the
spec-splitter diagnostics a little, but I didn't even
bother to commit that patch anywhere.)

A lot of the work is done with a --filter=.impl flag on anolis.

Again, to see how I generated this copy, see:

Mike did offer to do that.
