I came up with this first pass at metadata-extraction for manpages.
Currently it adds the following keys:

Doc:Title - the manpage name, i.e. ls, cat

Doc:Subject - based on the formal descriptions of each section from
man(1) page, i.e. "Executable Programs", "Library Calls".  This part
needs i18n love.

Man:Section - this a custom key referring to the manpage section
(1-9, plus wierd ones like 3ssl and 3pm).  Is it legal/kosher to add
own key like that?

Doc:Description - taken from the 'NAME' section of the manpage,
specifically the text after the '-'.

something i need to do in trackerd for it to index files of type

received any feedback.

weekend for sure...
