Please can we have debian/<package>.man or something similar in which
to list the files?

Another couple of requests:  I would love to see more use of
complex_doit rather that doit when reading file lists.  It would be
much nicer to be able to say README.* in one of the debhelper files
than have to list all of the files explicitly.

Also, I think there was once a request to have all of the debhelper
commands be able to take any necessary information from the command
line instead of having to read files.

Thanks for all your hard work,
