Yes, those graphs definitely seem most useful as a complement to our
current documentation (I was astonished looking at them, thanks for the
demonstration BTW).

I just hope if we used both, that the rate at which man pages are
updated doesn't yet drop more, and that the code doesn't eventually
get bloated with alot of documentation rather than the currently short
and concise comments...  Probably only possible long-term issues we have
to remember to avoid IMO
