Well, that produces an interesting list.  Mine has 6,409 entries.  However, it 
is really not very useful as it does not contain locate, grep, sort, lsof, 
mount, umount, reboot, less, more, mkdir, ls, wc, man, su or any of the 
commands I frequently use.

What we need is something that will pull out line 4 of each of the man pages.  
Won't sed do something like that?
