I don't know, but I would like to read it, if you find

Generally though it is better to put the question like
this: what would you like to do? Or: what are you
doing, that you would like to do in another way? what
are you doing that you don't want to do? etc.

If you just want to be a more advanced user all over
the board, then indeed the reference manual should
keep you busy years to come :)
