-- Yes. But if/as we try to make linux more useable, such anachronisms should be smoothed out. E.g. it would be nice to have dynamic www pages, which give access to conversions of all available documentation on a system, looking in all the relevant places to index it.

This would merge the various sources, and provide a single consistent browsing /access tool, instead on (info, man, zcat).
