- mention that not only programs have manpages

- missing whitespace before [--help

- why not indent the second line of two-line commands?

- update-/any/ often are not _configuration_ commands, many of these are
  rather called after some manual/scripted/GUIed configuration change
  has been done.

- deborphan: What do you mean with "i.e. libraries"?

- /var/log: there are also user log files, e.g. ~/.xsession-errors
  (which sometimes gets annoyingly big...)
