Yes, I do search a local copy of the docs more often than not.

That's a good idea, thanks for the suggestion!

I'm half tempted to put the function/tag reference on a strict diet;  
with a pinch of automation it could be kept up to date and reasonably  
sized. There is an awful lot in the docs that isn't directly relevant  
to finding out what arguments you can pass to a particular function,  
and in my view should not be in the bundle in any case.

Food for thought, though. I wish there were more hours in the day.
