I think so.
Personally, I want complete and accurate documentation of functions
preferably written by their authors.  That's why for glibc functions I
use info (and for linux functions I use man).  I don't mind
occasionally having to type "u" to get to the higher level when I'm
reading docs on functions of some particular class.

I'd also point out that Vim in the de-facto standard editor for Linux ;)
