A place for everything and everything in its place. Man pages are
extremely useful because they are concise. Tutorial-style documents with
all the extra verbiage and repetition are also useful but best as a
separate document (probably on the web). The ssh manpage is quite long
already, though nowhere near the worst offender (bash comes to mind),
and I would side with Stuart.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the
right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
