OK, this should be an easy one to clean up--I think we should kill
off the translate_* bunch because htsearch now does the re-coding
before displaying results.

I'm less sure what we should do for attributes we've removed. I'm
inclined to say that the documentation on the website represents the
latest version and if you want the documentation for your version,
you already have it in htdoc/*.html

Are there any other attributes which are (or should) be defunct in
the next release? Since word_list isn't used in the code, I think it
should go, unless we want to change word_dump to word_list (they have
remarkably similar function). I'm also wondering if we shouldn't kill
