  • $\begingroup$ Oh I thought it was some MMA 10 thing i.e. previous MMA versions did show the usage blurb. If that's not true then I don't know why WRI would omit it from that function :/ $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @seismatica You should still have usage messages for other functions. This is a new-in-10 function and they apparently forgot the usage message. There are lots of small (and some not so small) errors in the current documentation and this appears to be one of them. $\endgroup$
