My opinion is that only big packages which have several manpages (or
names that are already present) should have a postfix (like mh and x).

Anyway, in mandb code there is a list of 56 postfixes going from 1bind,
3paper, 3readline and 3ncurses, just to tell few.

The problem is that actually their order for search is hardcoded, so I
should know about new postfix added.
