Thanks a lot for these extremely useful comments; I appreciate it.

I've made all the changes you suggested, except for one:

>   9.1
>     - What does it mean to say that the framework 'only handles types with
>       one qualifier'?

This was old, or I'm not sure what it meant.  I deleted it.  Thanks for
catching this.

I've also added more code examples of using the meta-annotations, and added
some links to relevant Javadoc.  I'm not sure exactly how to make the
manual section less off-putting.  I added an encouraging "it's easy!" note
at the beginning and tried to be clearer about what parts of javac a
checker depends on.

I have attached new version of the manual, in both HTML and PDF, in case
there were issues that still confused you -- you can see if the manual is
adequate now.
