That would be a reasonable stance if tutorials provided an
introduction of every concept.  Often they only cover a subset.  In
such cases the man pages are the _only_ documentation and thus a
newcomer's primary intro to more exotic features.  Recourse to
googling, experimenting, posting to news groups, etc. all suggest that
the reference documentation failed at some level.
