	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	And a yup on the outdated docs too.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	music app (Gnome), but the documentation was way out of date in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... .
