Well this one is easy, Ian. I can copy from you:

TIME(1)                  Debian GNU/Linux                 TIME(1)

       time - Run programs and state system resources use.

       time  does  not  have  a  useful  man page.  Please do not
       report this as a bug.

       Instead, if you are a competent and  accurate  writer  and
       are  willing to spend the time reading the source code and
       writing good manpages please write a better man page  than
       this one.

       Type time --help for a brief summary of how to use time.

Guess I'll leave this open 'til I get 'round to write it up from the info
