Dock into the light - Dock that rye bread!

In a recent rye thread, I threw my hat in the non-docking ring. If the loafs are perfectly proofed, maybe you don't need to. After a particularly 'rustic' looking batch of Vollkornbrot last week, I busted out the dough docker and the resulting loaves are definitely better looking!
