Feature suggestion

To some degree it already does.  xwpe can display the man pages for
various standard C library functions by using Topic Search while the
cursor is on the function or using the Function Index.  Unfortunately
the man pages don't cover standard C++ library or language constructs.
They also don't typically have examples.  I don't know if the man
pages will eventually cover some or all of these areas.  If not I could
perhaps throw in some way to add additional information like that but
I'm affraid I don't have the time to create the content.
