This seems to be cr^Hontrary to the idea of caching.

A man-daemon? Or a 6755 root.man rendering part?

Wouldn't simpy let every user have his own cache be much simpler
and not even too much worse, since different users tend to read
different manpages? A cronjob could collect these per-user
cached pages into a shared cache if this is really needed, and
clean up the user caches.
