The actual proof itself, yes.

I would hope that an explanation for mathematical peons like myself would
also be forthcoming. Whether that would be more appropriate to Wikipedia or
Wikibooks is a matter for conjecture.

I am still having difficulty figuring out where exactly Wikibooks is
supposed to mesh with Wikipedia in the grand Wikimedia scheme...to read some
of the discussions there, it would seem that they don't think any kind of
"meshing" suitable at all, which seems ridiculous to me...
