    They were changed a while back... several months ago, when
    I changed the manual page CGI interface.  The original 
    interface supported both forms.  The new one only supports the
    new form.  The old '+' form doesn't work for manual pages with
    '+'s in them.

:Though it wasn't broken when it used that format before - just glitchy.
:The man page cgi is not in CVS, so I can't check the history there.
