Yeah, I guess some is better than none, and we could do that, as long as we
we're clear in the release announcement that the man pages are a work in
progress, and if people find some are missing, just filing bug reports that
they're not done yet isn't useful, but submitting patches to add them is.

Or we could just add stubs for all of them, with a placeholder "To be written
notice" for the description so at least the auto generated prototype & struct
info is there.
