It's also more than nice if it links itself into s.th. like
dhelp... having all the various documentation on a system easily
accessible in a meaningful structure.  (I do hope something like this
is behind the Debian doc system... and then it makes *lots* of sense
to bind external docs into this).

PS: I'd love to have a better way of getting at the linux-gazette than
wait for some overworked maintainer to build new packages.  Yes, wget
gets 'em... but then they're not installed into the doc system...

PPS: Well, yes, I know I should probably take a look at the lg
packages to see how to make a generic package out of it... or rather
some lg-packager package...
