Package: docbook-to-man
Version: 1:2.0.0-11
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

I think the postscript at the output of every docbook-to-man processed 
file is extremely annoying, ie:

.sp \\$2u       \" move below the image
.de pF
.ie     \\*(f1 .ds f1 \\n(.f
.el .ie \\*(f2 .ds f2 \\n(.f
.el .ie \\*(f3 .ds f3 \\n(.f
.el .ie \\*(f4 .ds f4 \\n(.f
.el .tm ? font overflow
.ft \\$1

and so on. It pisses me off to no end. Source says this:

# ***** modify the following line (to "=false") if you're not using the
# ***** Elan Documentor's Workbench


which, if set to false, won't create this output. I've done it for mine, 
but I don't think anybody uses the Elan Documentor... Could you at least 
make this variable setting dependent on arguments? I have attached a 
small diff to this end, for the source package.

This is a little hackish, but it does the job for me. Don't know whether 
you have a better solution or whether you want to implement this at all.
