:man sticky's BUGS section says mkdir can't create sticky folders, which
:is wrong.
:Is this list intended for such observations?
:/Jonas Sundström.

    It turns out that mkdir(2) (the system call, not /bin/mkdir) in fact
    cannot create directories with the sticky bit set.  So the manual page
    is a bit obtuse but correct.  I will clarify the manual page.
