Years ago, when I worked at Control Data, some incorrect cabling instruction
made it through two review cycles before the engineer noticed. Pretty scary.

I decided that the nice formatting definitely got in the way of tehcnical
reviews, and contemplated producing tech-review drafts using a much plainer
format - not wrapping anything much in paragraphs.

The division closed and I moved on before I could try it. Anyone else tried
that?
