okay, so forget POLA.  My point is that a user following a how to or
even *our* documentation on how to install something unrelated, like
say, apache, will be very confused when the documentation tells them
to run "pkg install apache" and finds out that pkg doesn't exist. A
similar example is needing "rehash" in tcsh.
