Re: Creating symlinks to manpages

Does it make sense?

1. Extend d/xxx.manpages to form:

bar.1 foo.1

2. dh_installman will create symlink bar.1 -> foo.1

3. dh_compress will take care of symlinks, e. i.:

a) compress foo.1 to foo.1.gz (or whatever)
b) rm bar.1
c) create symlink bar.1.gz -> foo.1.gz

I remember such a thing in Slackware :-)
