I have never run xfs_metadump before and I am in a state of worry that
my filesystem is toast. I would therefore like to be re-assured that
what I am doing is correct. I did that by reading and re-reading the
manual to make sure I had understood it correctly. By providing me
with an example of the right way to do it in the man page, I will feel
more confident that what I am about to do it correct and I could
probably save time by not having to re-read the manual.

So I am not saying the information is not there, what I am saying is
that you in a simple way could make it easier to grasp the
information.
