Hi Alan,

Thanks for the reminder of the other files. I checked all the files in 
the open and closed repos with 'grep -r CheckEndorsedAndExtDirs'. I 
found only 3 man pages in the open repo that contained references to 
CheckEndorsedAndExtDirs. No test cases or any other files refer to this 

Here's an updated webrev that added the changes to the mage pages. It 
also removes the dead code in arguments.cpppointed out by Mandy and David.
