i don't believe Joe User has any idea of canonical forms:
he simply wants to know `Does it work?'
Jill User is even more pragmatic about such things ...

it's not quite obvious to me & certainly wouldn't be to JU,
who is likely to hit the last one directly from the starting list.

and now i've looked at that final bit of Users Guide,
what on earth is it there for?  FM being a schoolmarm?
yes,  k  is far easier than  lynxkeymap: ,
but now i've found a way of going to the startfile
without popping the stack via  m , but hold on!
 m  doesn't pop the stack, so why is there a warning message?
but now i'm beginning to question the Wisdom of the Ancients 
& will bring down on my head the collective wrath of all true believers.
