Sounds like a great idea in general.  But: correct manual pages is not
something that is specific to debian packages, so maybe manlint would be
a better idea, also having it as a part of the man-db package instead
might be an idea.  lintian already depends on man-db, so the
dependencies wouldn't change, and it would also mean that linda can use
the same check without code duplication.
