In Release 18.90 for Drag status box ---

The rest is plug and play as they used to say many "moons" ago.

moons -- is not an appropriate word to be used.

IMO it works. It's casual talk at least for Native Americans AFAIK.

A few things I noticed recently from v19 PDF. Some of these I am probably just being pedantic or am wrong about, but I just added them so you can decide.

On page 33

If you are browsing the network then if this option is enabled then the check for existence of servers


Could possibly be, "If you are browsing the network with this option enabled then the check for existence of servers". On page 437:

From version 9.70 onwards the prefixed with "::" is not necessary anymore


Could possibly be, "From version 9.70 onwards the "::" prefix is not necessary anymore". On page 658:

import/include.In


Is just missing a space after the period.
