   list all the essentials of the behaviour of commands. I rarely
   want to get into the labyrinth of a texinfo document (though I'm
   pleased it's there I need the more discursive information it

I can't help but agree here as well.  I admit that I will pick the
manual over an info document on every occasion, but then again, I
don't use GNU.  It does create a bit of a dilemma with groff and
man pages on the one hand, and having the GNU coding standards
refer to 'man pages' as 'secondary.'
