Hmmm, rereading this it may have sounded very different than my original
intention and entirely wrong.  `Evil' was meant to have a joking-style
meaning here.

Wojciech is right on the spot when he says that it's annoying as hell to
see manpages which merely point to an Info page.  Especially when that
info pages are in a different package, which isn't installed by
default... ``doh!'' :)
