Off the top of me head, how about making the tool that handles the
generation be something like "debian-update-docs", and allow the admin
to re-run it if they change the config file.
Perhaps the tool could even leverage make, building a makefile that
would force only the right things to get updated. This would have the
added advantage that if we ever do start preserving upstream
timestamps in pacakges, then installing a package update wouldn't
necessarily mean regenerating all the docs output formats.
Make seems like an ideal tool to incorporate into this process.

I might be willing if I can scrape some time together.
