All I know is that's how it's currently set up on my Debian machine,
so I presume that the assumption is that they do.

I guess that if someone is so knowledgeable that they will have
different base files, they will be able to figure out what they're
doing :-/

But we could just leave it....  Just that I know that more than one
person has been confused.

Incidentally, on this theme:

  mf(1) doesn't appear to refer to mfw


  the tbl table in mf(1) doesn't format; the error message is:

/usr/bin/tbl:/tmp/zman73chih:147: `.' not last character on line
/usr/bin/tbl:/tmp/zman73chih:147: giving up on this table

Not being a tbl programmer, I don't quite know what this means...
