Good afternoon...

That's a very interesting idea.  I guess that would cover (excuse my 
un-certainty with the terminology here) the /kernel/ but not the 
/userland/.  For the /userland/ i assume I would still have to man every 
executable - and then some - that I find?

Headed for the second star to the right and straight on 'til morning...
