This is useful for users lacking in local storage.  Also,
referencing lei-add-external(1) seems to make less sense
than referencing lei-q(1).

We'll also stop dropping years from the copyright statement
to reduce future churn.

True, not sure why I went with lei-add-external there (probably forgot
to update that section after copying over an existing lei manpage as a
