 I would definitely like to see the entire NetBSD Guide in the base 
 system.  This would greatly benefit people without internet connections 
 or people who have no reason to install a web browser solely for the 
 purpose of accessing the Guide.  The Guide is a great piece of 
 documentation, IMHO, and making it more available by putting it in 
 /usr/share/doc in a readable format doesn't have any disadvantages that 
 I can see.
 Making the docs that are already available in /usr/share/doc available 
 in formats that are readable at the command line without installing 
 additional software would be greatly helpful too.  Shipping docs with 
 the base system that are unreadable with the base system makes little 
 sense.  The only other solution to this that I see would be shipping a 
 text browser with the base system, but I doubt anyone wants to do that :P.
 I'd like to hear some others opinions on this.
 My two cents,
