It takes less time to add 2 example lines into the man pages than to
answer complaints on the list.

And it does more for your user base than fixing a dozen bugs.

I happen to be project leader for AUCTeX and preview-latex, and can
tell you from that position that shaving time off basics from the
standard documentation of the standard commands is not going to
improve your total time balance.  It will always be more efficient to
answer once for thousands of people than to answer a dozen times for a
dozen people even if hundreds just give up without a peep.
