Should I extract the textual documentation and send it to ctan?
In some of my other packages I delimit the instructions as so:

%====================== BEGIN INSTRUCTIONS ===========================
%====================== END INSTRUCTIONS ===========================

and I should also do that with ulem.  I at one point thought that
texdoc would be able to extract on the fly.

Hmmm, the version on ctan is 2000 whereas my copy is 2004, so some minor
fixes went unreleased.

On the other hand, I am not averse to making a crude LaTeX document
out of the instructions.  Should I do that and avoid special handling?

As part of making a new version, I may include some more command
definitions that I have posted on c.t.t over the years.
