I am considering using pgf/TikZ.  I see (now) that gwTeX includes it,  
but when trying to open the documentation, texdoc pgf and texdoc tikz  
do not find anything, but texdoc pgfmanual does.  I only knew this  
filename because I thought gwTeX did not include it and found the  
manual in the package download.  As another example, texdoc hyperref  
and texdoc hyperref/manual yield two different pdfs.  In general, how  
I am supposed to know how to call the documentation if texdoc  
<packagename> does not open it?
