Idea: download manual pages when not available

Hi all,

When a particular manual page is not available on the system, it might
be nice if man were able to download the manual page.

To do this we need:

A repository of manual pages. Done!


A way to download raw manual pages.

A patch for man-db to check the option about when to download manual
pages (never, ask or always; default to ask), check which manual page
repository to use (Debian/Ubuntu; default to dpkg vendor info) and
params to pass to it and then download and display the manual page.

Any volunteers?
