I understand you use some kind of graphical file manager that opens
files for you into some kind of "document viewer". I wouldn't think
anyone tab-completing this on a command line would ever have the need to
"bookmark" stuff otherwise.

That's rather a long list. I expected a much shorter list of packages
that use /usr/share/doc/$PF to store data that is read at run time
(which they probably shouldn't do in the first place) so they would
benefit from this. I was not asking for a list of packages that install
documentation in /usr/share/doc/$PF. If that was the only criterium that
mattered, then I wouldn't have asked for a list. :)
