Right. That's definitely not the purpose of the HTML files or manpages, which is pedagogical. I just didn't want anybody jumping in and putting the .hmrc file in the same order, when I think an order that recognizes that experienced users will almost certainly have more than one list is best for .hmrc.

If I can figure out how to make the Cygwin CVS work, I'll try to do a little sorting on the .hmrc file this weekend.
