There was a reason for not making it work like that originally; said reason
is, admittedly, now defunct.

Quite a lot of people have asked for this; nobody's yet offered a script that
auto-generates it off the specific module docs (which would make it easy to
keep them in sync) or even a patch that adds the current set of methods into
the POD for core.

Either would be extremely welcome, but I don't have the tuits, I'm afraid.
