I think you should probably make the effort to fill in the examples
using existing methods to show you understand the consequences of your
vote - you may have difficulty with the single line constraint if you
want your examples to be readable, but no doubt a blank line separator
for multiline examples would be accepted if necessary.

Of course, it would be nice if a single keyword could magically work
out what is wanted - lets enhance that proposal to the point where the
single keyword 'abracadabra' will magically work out what the user
wants done and do it for him!

Oh hang on - I'd end up redundant, so let's not.
