Bug Description

Binary package hint: moreutils

moreutils contains a programme 'pee' that claims to "pee is like tee but for pipes". However the man page is quite terse and doesn't actually explain what it's meant to do or how to do it.

I suggest expanding the man page, particularly by adding examples.
