Shouldn't that be `@code{\renewenvironment*}' in the second line of that 

We can also look into source2e.pdf and latex.ltx to see that the former 
text was correct.

     \def\renewenvironment{\@star at domain.hid}

I am in favour of encouraging the starred form, arguments of 
environments should not contain multiple paragraphs. That's what the 
body of the environment is for. But of course, this is just my opinion.
