Well yes and no I would have thought.   -doc packages are great ideas
for the times in your life when you seem to spend 90% of your package
build time running latex or something similar and they have build-deps
as long as your arm.  I *also* like the idea of something like nodocs
stripping all docs from the core of the package - no manpages, readme,
changelog etc (probably need to keep licence).  Most of the
documentation is completely unused in an embedded environment.
