Sure, or archive.d.o, but at my day job a lot of the admins I work
with would be hard-pressed to be able to retrieve and extract the
docs from an arbitrary DEB without a lot of instruction... they're
just fine with using Web browsers though since that's how they get
to "the Google" already.

It sounds like Ubuntu already have a good solution at manpages.u.c,
and have worked through a lot of the tougher issues (like
internalionalized indexing, which I hadn't even thought about).
