Excuse me, but I do much of my Python development on Linux and Solaris,
where Lynx (with its ease of navigation) does a much better job on
documentation than man pages -- for me.  (I mentioned this in another
post, but I figured sticking in the OS references was worth a repeat.)
I can't tell you how many times I've gotten pissed at having one Perl
man page reference another with no direct mechanism for getting there.
