This is a worthwhile effort. Of course, I wasn't familiar with this
area and only took interest when I started working in a conflicting
area.

I pointed out some questions about the "dashed versus non-dashed"
forms.

Please also base onto 722fc37491 (help: do not expect built-in
commands to be hardlinked, 2020-10-07) as requested by Szeder.
