I like the idea of having manpages for this stuff. netcfg(8) already
has a manpage, pacman has manpages, etc. and this is in the
psuedo-standard asciidoc we've used for a lot of it. Do any of the
developers object to adding some documentation to this Arch-specific
stuff and having it be built and installed with the relevant packages?
It is also a great way for people to get involved that don't feel as
confident coding.
