It's been a while since I wrote lisp ...

What I need to do is to use the existing man.el but a different man program. The situation is complicated since the program I want to use has a man subcommand:

        acme man ...

What I want to do is to create a variation of the man command that would invoke acme with the first argument man and the rest provided by the user as in the original man command. I want to use all the stuff provided in the man.el.

I could copy man.el and edit it, but I will wait for a few days hoping someone will point to a more elegant solution.
