Hi friends!

Do the HTML and PDF versions of our man pages that we ship in every
tarball provide any value to you?

Removing them from the tarballs would take away between 30-35% of the
compressed file size and thus produce much smaller release packages.

A simple check right now:

  bz2 - from 4047215 to 2568070 bytes
  zip - from 7366802 to 5019690 bytes

Bandwidth savings alone are worth the removal.
You could always have a separate _docs.tar.gz file.

Also, the xz compression could really reduce things further.
