Right, replace some names.  Not replace the manual or the help commands
with something else.  It might make it possible for some people to
resort to the manual and help commands a bit less often, but that
doesn't mean it will replace them, just like the refcard doesn't
replace the manual, or eldoc doesn't replace the help commands.
