I keep on having to dig for the URL of this page:

it would be useful to have an inline help at least for the list of commands...

maybe something as simple as this could do the job?

maybe refer to the wiki page as well?

Why is this not merged, but referenced in Let's just implement this, no?

It's a wiki. Anyone can edit it.

No, I meant: It's a patch, you can merge it. :)
