No, no disagreement from me. :-) It'd certainly be nice if all relevant
information are in one place, clear and precise. And a "man whatever"
gives you everything you want.

BTW, it just struck me that the style of the apt.conf manpage is
somewhat different -- more like some explanatory essay than telling you
how to do something. It relegates the details to an example document.
