      with clearer text.
    In standard English, the normal construction is "${XXX} allows ${YYY}
    to" -- that is, the subject (${XXX}) of the sentence is allowing the
    object (${YYY}) to do something.  When the object is missing, the
    phrasing sounds awkward, even if the object is implied by context.
    There's almost always a better construction that isn't as awkward.
    These changes should make the language a bit clearer.
