Quite. I don't think it's practical to try and do away with man or
info anyway. After all, there are now quite a few tools - Gnome Help,
for example - which can present most of the different document formats
in a unified fashion for those that need it.
Not that I'd shed a tear if the info tool disappeared. I find it's
navigation method clunky and much of the GNU info documentation
Unix and C are the ultimate computer viruses.
