Hi, Bradley,

You can call up man page for user.coda(5) by "man user_coda" and
groups.coda(5) by "man groups_coda".  I think Peter picked underscore
rather than the "." as an hack for some reason.  He is on vacation and
I can't confirm from him.

The file user.coda and passwd.coda are actually the same thing (Josh
may correct me if I am wrong).  Two names have been used as suggested
name for this file in the long history of Coda ... Should we settle to
a fixed name so as not to cause further confusion ?
