My pager can search by strings, meaning organizing sections by the header's
spelling gets me nothing.

My pager cannot group them by topic, the version in which we added them, or
quite a few other properties.  Picking one or more of those to use for
organizing actually has benefits.

I find the idea that anyone would be paging through perlvar trying to find
things in dictionary order to be hard to swallow.  "Oops, I paged past the P's,
I'll have to go back a few pages..."
