Well, if they are big enough that the disk space usage is a concern,
then they should definitely be moved to a separate -doc package.

Otherwise, I'd suggest html, because that's the only useful format for
every-day use ('grep' etc. cannot be used on PS/PDF, or just think about
doing development on a text console).
