yes, pod is but i dont believe any of the linkage tags where preserved
when the documentation was converted over from the .html.  i have
dreams of re-doing the conversion to get the links and diff between
the two trees to put the links back.

which is why i think the cross references between the man pages is 
somewhat useful.  when formatted as html it makes is easier to go
see the reference command -- just follow the link.  however, i dont
recall how much there was.  this would sort of determine whether or
not this would even be worth the effort.
