You're not the only one who destest those bleeping "info"-type
Forward and BAckwards make sense; but then what is Up/Down?
And a yup on the outdated docs too. There is a seriously K00L
music app (Gnome), but the documentation was way out of date in
'06. ((But then, I'd much rather code 1,000 lines that write
just a few ages of docs, so, I understand the problem. Code you
can *read* and figure out. Different with even good docs. I
think the best man pages include a feew examples... .
