By the way, that rendering shows that the whole document could probably
use a few tweaks to make its asciidoc formatting look good (in addition
to the "x." thing that Jean-Noël fixed here, which can also be seen
there).

TBH, I still have mixed feelings on rendering these technical docs with
asciidoc at all. It seems like few enough people bother to render them
that bugs persist for a long time. It kind of seems like make-work
getting them to format correctly.
