you're right, such a list is not much of use. It probably would
have made most sense in the texi documentation, but even there,
the gain is not too much.
This idea came to my mind when reading the df(1) documentation
where we write a lot about FSTYPEs. And I thought it might be worth
for some users to have such a list at hand.
Yes, stat(1) is not the best place for it.
Have a nice day,
