I just want to make my point clear.

What about all the people who do not receive Gerben's mails ? For  
example, I learned about texdoc by chance, on this forum, and this  
morning, Franck Pastor did not know what texdoc was.
My point is that :
1) Sometimes a commercial software with a complete doc may be useful ;
2) TeX gurus are also useful, but it's a hard job. I am the teX guru  
of my wife and several colleagues : all of them do not even know the  
name of Gerben. And they forget it whenever I tell them (e. g., find  
out Gerben Wierda on Google, then download i-Installer, etc.) ;
3) Many people don't even have a guru.

> I believe texdoc is a standard part of several TeX distributions.

Most people I know (mathematicians) want to know at most one TeX

How could have I guessed all this by myself ? How did you learn about  
it ? (This is the same point as above !)

Thank you Herb for your help,
