I think that I won't apply this, since it will hide sigevent(7).
Okay?

Thanks,

Michael

Fine,  sigevent(7) already documents the type, so it's perfect.  The 
type will be documented in system_data_types.7 anyway, so no problem.

I guess you'll add a reference to system_data_types(7) in sigevent(7), 
right?

Thanks,

Alex

Do you think it's needed? I"m not so sure...

Not sure.

There are a few things that are documented in system_data_types but not 
in sigevent(7), but not too many.

Thanks,

Alex

For the moment, I think the reference probably isn't needed.

Thanks,
