I think that's great, but as i've been looking into Debian documentation
indices the last week or so. I'm told that dhelp and dwww are on the way
out, and doc-central (doccentral) is on the way in.

The only problem I see, is that doc-central relies on a cgi-capable web
server running on the machine, which most home users don't want or need to
have running. I tried it with dhttpd, a simpler web server, but since that's
not cgi-capable it didn't work.

dhelp OTOH worked without any web server.
