Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me that
curiosity killed the cat, I say only that the cat died nobly.

man -k config

spams the screen.
So I tried redirecting it through less, but then I get nothing.

I also tried

because I thought it might be written to stderr, but that didn't work either.
see above
I suggest so, yes.
