Hi Torsten:
Two very minor issues that can probably be ignored...but I could not 
help but send an email :)

1. The use of quotation marks with "in place" everywhere in the document 
seems strange.  Do we really need to quote this everywhere?  My thought 
was just in-place, but I assume that "in place" is legacy.

I did some research and found a bunch of stuff, but nothing to really 
tell me whether using the quotes were right or wrong.

I found this at http://owl.english.purdue.edu/handouts/grammar/g_quote.html
    Use quotation marks to indicate words used ironically,
    with reservations, or in some unusual way.

2. Somewhat similarly, on page 50, why do we quote "pathological"?  I 
think in this case we should just drop the quotes?
