That's the plan (I have to wait for stable to be remerged back
into master though, because there's been a regression fix). I
thought of first implementing everything and going for
documentation later, but meanwhile I think, I could do the
documentation stuff in parallel with implementing, starting
(which can be done immediately) with the idea of an overview
table at the top, like Jonathan M. Davis suggests. Currently,
this would only mention zip-bombs and chameleon-files. But with
every further fix it can be extended.
