The byhand entries are necessary to get the document files installed into
the /debian/doc/ directory of the archive mirrors.

I agree, I'd prefer to upload without them and not delay the package and
trouble the FTP admins. However, no other way has been set up to update the
doc/ directory.

Note also that the current maint-guide upload is stuck in incoming for
another reason -- I've added maint-guide-it and maint-guide-pl packages
which require editing the override file.

Arguably all of these tasks are trivial, but they nevertheless require FTP
admin intervention, and such things are a scarce commodity :/
