Walter> For some commands, man pages would be a *MAJOR* improvement.
Debian (and hence Ubuntu) considers it a bug when a program has no
manpage, so package maintainers generally write one if upstream
neglects to. This may be a pleasant surprise if you use another
distribution. Or maybe not.
Anyway, info manuals were not supposed to replace manpages, they
serve a different purpose. That the GNU project decided the purpose
served by manpages wasn't a valid one is another story.
A true pessimist won't be discouraged by a little success.
