I don't think not offering man pages can be justified by changes in
software. Any reasonably popular program used on Linux distributions,
such as GNU coreutils, also changes over time but it still comes with
man pages and info pages, even if some of the commands are quite
simple, such as base64.

Looks like I phrased that question ambiguously. Sorry about that. Rich
