Is it really that hard to generate man pages from the DocBook
source? When you're just looking for a quick reference for a
function you can't quite remember how to use, there's nothing
that beats a manpage. Clicking through a dozen of html pages
before you arrive at the right page just isn't the same so
I really hope we can generate some manpages.
