In my humble opinion as few manual pages as possible pleas. I very often
run applications with my mobile phone (a Nokia 9110 with telnet!). And
dont have the possibility to open many windows...

And manual pages like this

$man mirror

MIRROR(1L)                                             MIRROR(1L)

       mirror - mirror packages on remote sites

       Please  read the HTML documentation for mirror that should
       have been supplied with the program or can be read at:


I just hate them... ;-)
