Hmm. I was looking at \? first and because the 1-liner there isn't
even attempting to explain the \crosstabview syntax, went on to
bookindex.html, but could only find the "wrong" crosstab there.

\copy is the other example where I'd think a bookindex entry would
make sense so people can look up the documentation, all the other
\backslash things are much easier to grasp.

Not sure if it's only me, but bookindex.html is where I have my
browser bookmark to start diving into the documentation.

Another thing about \crosstabview:

# select 1,2 \crosstabview
The query must return at least two columns to be shown in crosstab

s/two/three/, I guess.
