Remove c2man from testing

Package: c2man
Testing: 2.41-16
Unstable: 2.41-16
Suggestion: remove-from-testing remove-from-unstable
 c2man has been dead upstream for years (which was, so far, not a
 problem), and does not work with modern C/C++ programs -- which _is_
 a problem. The functionality has been superseded with packages like
 doxygen; it has been requested that c2man be removed from Sid.
 (Grave Bug#192016)

Do not allow this language (Ada) in its present state to be used in
applications where reliability is critical, i.e., nuclear power
stations, cruise missiles, early warning systems, anti-ballistic
missile defense systems.  The next rocket to go astray as a result of
a programming language error may not be an exploratory space rocket on
a harmless trip to Venus: It may be a nuclear warhead exploding over
one of our cities.  An unreliable programming language generating
unreliable programs constitutes a far greater risk to our environment
and to our society than unsafe cars, toxic pesticides, or accidents at
nuclear power stations. Hoare
