perhaps g.help can learn to convert on-the-fly from MAN to text format (as

Due to the HTML conversion all files are in one directory (as you know).
Personally and opposite to UNIX conventions I don't see much sense in
supporting topic oriented man/man1, man/man2... sections. As the user
won't go directly into these directories, I don't understand why we would
need such separation. Perhaps I missing something here?
Generally (if updated) the g.help could be a nice help. But the
keyboard settings are still very odd (d - Scrolls down one line etc.)
I could only manage to implement PAGEUP and PAGEDOWN...
