What's the best format for a CLI reference guide?

The ArubaOS Command Line Interface Reference Guide currently lists all commands in alphabetical order.  Would you find the CLI Guides more useful if the commands were instead sorted into groups by command function or feature, or is the book easier to use when it the content is presented as a simple alphabetical list?

I think the CLI Reference Guide serves a specific purpose: a situation where I know the command that I want, but need guidance on syntax or usage. In other cases, I know what "type" of feature I'm looking for, but do not know which CLI command to use. In this case, a functional grouping would be more useful. (Actually, since the Admin Guides are arranged this way, I usually use them in order to find out which command is appropriate.)

I like the commands in alphabetical order.
