    If you refer to additional libraries, I think a programmer has a good
    knowledge in what library each function lives.  After all, it's the
    same programmer who needs to add a -lFOO switch to the link command

Not necessarily.  Maybe she didn't write the code.  Maybe she is looking
for the docs for a function because she doesn't know what it does.

If she has to specify the library name to find the function,
she might as well just browse and find that library's manual.
She can do that now.  The point is that this isn't convenient.

The goal of this discussion is to design a more convenient
