Suggestion for a minor improvement in the man pages

Hi,

I find it useful to have in the man pages information about in which
release a particular function was introduced.
For example, file:advise/4 was added in R14A, but such information is
only found (afaik) in the release notes for R14A .

For example, Java's API documentation normally adds this type of
information in a "Since" field, for example:
http://download.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/util/regex/Pattern.html

Does anyone else would value this addition?
What does the OTP team thinks?

regards,
