I'd intended mass maintonly bug reporting and an upload of man-db with
warnings [1], followed by implementation sometime before the base system
freezes. I also intend to write a lintian test if I can - this basically
involves writing the manpages tests that have been on the wishlist for
ever, but it should be doable with reference to the man-db source.

[1] This should be quite a small code change.
