-- shows how replacing '@see module' in the Markdown documentation
-- can be done more elegantly using PL.
-- We either have something like 'pl.config' (a module reference)
-- or 'pl.seq.map' (a function reference); these cases must be distinguished
-- and a Markdown link generated pointing to the LuaDoc file.
