I'm wondering, is unhtml really such a useful package to have in the
archive? The package description really sounds like it's a
perl-oneliner, indeed, the .deb's are 11kB in size.

What is the added value of this package to Debian? Also, why can't this
script/program be included in some other package that does
html-processing? Or, what about lynx -dump -stdin with some extra
options to drop the footnotes on links etc? It'll also reformat for
certain textwidths etc, making it IMHO much more useful.
