As a minor point, speaking as someone who actually reads TFM,
finding pages is easier in a sequentially numbered manual,
especially if I don't know it inside out. With page numbers
for each chapter, I have to guess, when I open to, say,
page 4-17, how far I am from 7-3. With sequential numbering,
I know how far page 134 is from page 188.
