But Debian only uses groff so it makes sense to have a Debian specific
change to pod2man which does that. Maybe you could provide a mean to have
some automatic post-processing of generated manpages? That way the perl

In that case, we can fix all manpages by fixing one package, it's
certainly better that having such hacks in many perl packages.
