        You are talking about partial upgrades from slink to
 potato. For this, we can ask people to upgrade first to proposed
 upgrades, which contain a fixed man-db package, or to edit
 /etc/manpath.conf manually.

        We do want to make partial upgrades smooth, but it is not
 unreasonable to ask people to upgrade to proposed-updates before
 doing paertial upgrades.
