Description

Currently the manual page prototypes is so generic in prototypes, but doesn't actually help a user get started. They end up having to crib form a combination of modc(5) and existing manual pages. We should instead create specific manual page prototypes with a bit more filled in for structure and explanation for other pages. Having examples for commands (section 1/1M), libraries (3), drivers (7D), and kernel entries and functions (9E/9F) would be a lot more useful.
