Should be able to. Unfortunately for us, our hotline found out that
``Release Notes'' spells ``Roundfile Me'' to many of our customers,
and that we needed to call it something different on the front cover
to let people know that this *isn't* the usual list of bug fixes that
nobody really reads anyway.

Hopefully, the name changed enough to change the document from a tosser
to a keeper. Not enough hotline data to know if it worked yet, YMMV.
