And yet, here's a case where it would be useful!

Are you saying that Debian has too much documentation?  What is the
non-computer-program which we have "too much" of?

I would venture to say that *most* of the archive is non-programs: web
pages, documentation, and all kind of other such stuff.  Could you
prepare a list of which man pages you think we should drop?
