Come on. That we do NOT install the docs by default is already a
concession. We could stop this discussion and I kill all the -doc
pakcages and include the doc files unconditionally into the packages,
due to the requirements of the LPPL.

Do you prefer that?

The bottom line is that *without* user interaction the documentation
files *HAVE*TO*BE*INSTALLED*. Full stop.
