I found your document useful, and others might find it useful too, but I
wonder if it would be good to merge your changes upstream rather than
maintaining a separate document. The man page is the definitive
documentation, and most of the information in your document is already
in the man page.

I don't know the basis for the ordering of the keyboard commands in the
man page. Is there an order or organization? Perhaps they should be
organized like in your document.

Did you know that you can very easily produce a postscript document from
a man page? On my system, doing "man -t dvtm >" will do so. To
produce a PDF document, "man -t dvtm | ps2pdf - dvtm.pdf".
