Actually, I can see it quite easily:
1) install man2html (in hamm, it's even recommended by something that
shouldn't even suggest it)
2) half a year later, put up a web site (hmm, apache is already installed!)
3) another half year later, upgrade to slink and notice man2html is no longer
recommended by anything
