	Proceed with caution here.
	I do not know if it is currently true, but it has in the past
been the case that (e.g.) option Q depends on device F which depends
on device B; while the relationship between Q and F is documented in
the config file, the one between F and B is not.
	The easy targets are disk(/RAID) drivers and network cards.
After that?  Stay alert; trust no-one; keep your un-delete key handy.
