How 'bout because things in /usr/bin should have manpages?

I think you have a serious disconnect from Unix, Jeff.  I was going to
say "Unix conventions", but suspect it's a much broader problem.  And
willful, rather than reflecting ignorance.

You probably don't see it as a problem, which is your prerogative, but
it means you're wasting your time and ours with all this transparent
