That's strange. I haven't tested it, but that much, at least
works for me. Well, at least it does from my shell with
'export area=1'

No, they're defined in and are generally simple enough
to be clear without documentation (with a few exceptions like
wi_events and wi_fnmenu). I'll add documentation to in

Real Programmers don't believe in schedules.  Planners make up
schedules.  Managers "firm up" schedules.  Frightened coders strive to
meet schedules.  Real Programmers ignore schedules.
