Well, thanks for the compliment.   I was worried about making too much work for maintainers!

Really it's the computer that has good eyes though -- lately I've been cobbling together a 'man page' typo bug report tool, it's not quite ready for public display yet, (think "very kludgy shell script", and kinda slow), but so far it seems to be working.  

What it does is get a list of suspicious words from a man page, (5 letters or more), filters out most of the duds, then displays 'em in an alphabetical menu, (since the filters can never be perfect for 'man' pages it needs human oversight, I'd guess about 5-10% of the lists are true typos) -- click on the menu, it goes to a text editor on the line with that word.  Once the human (me) is done, it writes a '.diff', attaches it to a bug report and sends it.
