 We cannot accept this statement. As Vladimir said, it one of our top
 priorities to keep the Physics reference Manual up to date in phase
 with the code; we spend a non negligable time on this.

 Concerning eBrems, it is quite stable since a long time, as it can
 be seen from the short history note located at the top of the classes
 G4eBremsstrahlung and G4eBremsstrahlungModel, and in the 'document
 status' in the Physics Reference Manual.

    Cheers,  Michel
