    Yah.  We only need one 'man hammer'.  The idea is that someone running

    get a nice introduction.
Maybe I was not clear before. This is not possible, since our hammer 
utility is named 'hammer' too and therefore hammer(8) already occupies 
the 'man hammer' slot.

We can't really do anything about this anymore, unless you agree to 
rename the utility to something else.

I will, however, add a pointer to the file system intro at the start of 
the hammer(8) manpage so that people know about hammer(5) too.
