Sure, we can do that. But why be anal about? If someones opens a PR
to fix cnlp on ppp, we can choose to fix it or add it to the man page.
I think that for the most part, manual pages document what a system
can do, and if it has any significant deficiencies, what it cannot do.
I don't see the inability of do cnlp or whatever else as a significant
deficiency worth while documenting.
