Sorry, I guess it wasn't clear what exactly I was referring to; this is
about the `#version` interaction.

The text currently reads "When #version is set as either the VERY first
statement of the scene file or via command-line option and the version
is 3.8 or greater ..."

As correctly explained on the `#verison` page, thanks to the recent
overhaul it will no longer be necessary to have a `#version 3.8` as the
VERY first statement to get the changed default; unfortunately the
overhauled behaviour is more complex, and maybe the easiest and least
disruptive way to solve this is just to phrase it something like this:

"The default pigment has been {{Change}}d in version 3.8 from `rgb
<0,0,0>` to `rgb <1,1,1>` (requires `#version 3.8` or equivalent INI
setting or command-line option; see [Version Directive] for more details)."
