if by modern, you mean Linux... :-)
actually when I think about it, that file is only for man(1)'s
benefit. makewhatis uses the information from NAME anyway, it just
splits on comma:
send-uucp, send-nntp, send-ihave - send Usenet articles to remote
oh well. I prefer the .so-files anyway, I think they are easier to
keep track of.
