Ah, ok. In that case, I think that it would be best to make a new page for
libSupport, and have it defer to SystemLibrary.rst for discussion of the
"libSystem" parts of libSupport. The major necessary changes for
SystemLibrary.rst would then be to mention its inclusion in libSupport
(important) and fix file paths (mechanical, less important).
