I think we should stop recommending documentation be put in a separate
package and tell people who don't want docs to exclude the relevant
parts of /usr/share/doc using dpkg excludes instead.  Disk space is
pretty cheap and we keep complaining about the per-package overhead in
Packages.gz, so it should be a net gain for most people.
