Wouldnt it be easier to modify the config scripts to give the user the
option to install the documentation or not?

And I think that documentation should be included any old how.  You can
remove it by hand if you dont like it.  And if you are in a position that
you think the documention is taking up *so* much of your diskspace, you're
probably experienced enough to do a rm -rf /usr/doc/*

People who dont want documentation due to memory constraints are by far
the minority.
