under <mkdir>, it might be good to tell the reader that the use of the 
<option>parents</option> also keeps <mkdir> from reporting an error if 
the target directory already exists; then again, this is an 
implementation specific detail and an implementation that didn't 
actually use "mkdir -p" wouldn't behave this way, so maybe not such a 
good idea
