Hi Philippe,

have you considered checking out the book's source code and sending
us a patch ('svn diff' output) which implements your suggestion?
That would be great help.
See the "Feedback/Contributing" section on

See for instructions
about compiling your own book from source. This assumes a Linux or
other Unix-like system is being used, however. I don't know how to
build the book on e.g. Windows so I can't help in that case. has some stylistic
notes. But if you don't have much time you can just send the change
to this list for review and we'll check any style issues for you.

If you don't have time to write a patch please open an issue in the
issue tracker at for
your suggestion so we can keep track of its status there.
