Seriously, Peter?

It's a simple colon. It goes along with the /** marker for kerneldoc
comments and the @ markers found within them, both of which you seem to
have found a way to live with.

The RST work was discussed for a year before we even started. It has
brought in the efforts of a large number of developers, all of whom see
the value in actually caring about our documentation and making it
accessible to a much larger group of readers. And it has all happened
while preserving the primacy of the plain-text documentation.

You're not the only consumer of the docs. You may not appreciate the
improvements that have come, but others certainly do. I do hope that you
can find it in youself to avoid vandalizing things for everybody else ...?
