I disagree.  I often pull my paper GNU manuals off the shelf rather than
consult the on-line documentation.  For most things I need to
accomplish, say with GNU Awk, the old paper manual is sufficiently
accurate and helpful.

I wonder what would happen if we applied the same standard you propose
to the *software* in the Debian archive...
