I'm sorry I interjected. Personally, I don't care at all whether it goes 
into the book or not. I just assumed fortune would produce quips like 
the Texas one you showed earlier for the xfce tips, which doesn't seem 
very useful. (Of course, for my own system, I would take a funny and 
entertaining tips feature over a useful one any day.)

Then I realized it would be using a different source for text with the 
supplied command.

Sorry for the noise.
