TF2 Engineer update hints?

Edit #2: ¬†Oops! It seems a slightly-different but much-more-legible version of this document was presented as part of the classless update! I’ve left my original guesses and ***** marks in-place, but note that certain sections (ex. Silas Mann) are new.

I decided to take a stab at deciphering the tiny text of the Zephreniah Mann & Sons Co. Quarterly Concern, which was posted on the Engineer Update page. (May edit if new material is made legible.)

I suspect it contains hints the same way the “Poopy-Joe” clippings contained later-announced weapons for the “War!” update.

We’ve already had the “Musket Gonne” shotgun announced, but what about some “capsules of toxiferous vapour” and “magikal remedies”?

Edit: With the release of the Engineer Update achievement icons and names, it seems pretty certain a guitar will make an appearance somehow, which reinforces section VII…
