It happens all of the time: when people new to Perl start using
perldoc to look up functions, they sooner or later find out that they
cannot get the documentation for "other keywords" like for, foreach,
while, by using perldoc -f. It seems a intuitive thing to try.

Maybe we should add these "other keywords" to perlfunc, or instruct
perldoc to try some fallback mechanism for these cases?
