It sounds like you have already committed to Docbook, and that's a fine
If the size of the source document is a concern for you, though, you may
be pleased that Docutils has ‘rst2man’ (from the ‘python-docutils’
package in Debian Squeeze) which renders reStructuredText source
documents to man pages. reStructuredText is much closer to plain text,
and will be significantly lighter than a Docbook XML document.
