Embedded copy of po4a in wine-doc (translation issue)

for all readers chiming in now: Wine-doc embedds a (forked?) copy of
po4a. This fork includes the man page translations as well, but the
package ships only generated docs (no man pages).

From the i18n perspective, this fork creates extra work for
translators who are not carefull, i.e. who simply read[1] and update
the translations mentioned there. Since the forked tools are not
shipped (and neither their man pages) could you at least remove the
translations and their framwork from the package to prevent useless

Better still would be, as always, to simply use po4a directly, of



[1] http://www.debian.org/international/l10n/po4a/de for German,
    similarly for other languages. I noticed because I wanted to talk
    to previous translators for completion and wondered why a package
    about wine had no string there actually mentioning wine.
