Someone mentioned having some man pages be automatically generated
by software which parses through syscalls looking for error codes
I just want to add my two cents about that, which is that this is
the sort of thing (similar) which Sun does with its Java documentation,
and the result is a lot of... well, STUFF which crowds out the actual
meaningful documentation.  I much prefer a couple of paragraphs of 
carefuly-written and coherent documentation to reams of generated

NetBSD's man pages, omissions and all, are about as good as it gets in
terms of clarity and readability; let's preserve that.
