My goal was to create a one page "cheat sheet" type document that one
could pin to the wall while learning the commands. The man page should,
and does, have more information that that. I think it would be good to
reorganize the commands in the man page, but I'm not good at man page
formatting, so I'll leave that to someone else to do.

FYI, I've added a new screen shot to my documentation page. It annotates
the left side of the status bar, which shows the tags and layout icon.
