I really like this idea.  The problem why I stopped using plain help2man
is that in most cases the result is not a proper manpage.  So I frequently
used a createmanpages while beeing perfectly aware that upstream changes
could make these (partially) wrong.  I'd love to have a better solution -
but the lintian check would be extremely helpful.

Kind regards
