I've got a small patch myself. I'll test yours. I'm pretty sure I
would have found more bugs there.

I'm not sure how I could say a document uses ms or not, but I've had
better success making doclifter treat X11.protocol as ms, by adding a
.ms extension, than by keeping it as it is.
The end result is still absolutely pityfull though.
