Sounds like a good idea in principle, but I definitely want to check how
things integrate first.

Most specifically, Wnn dates back from a time where I used it for japanese
input on kterms.

I'm not sure it works well on UTF-8 terminals... which means that having
the EUC manpages might actually be useful.

So, I'll have to try... the easiest fix is probably utf-8 groff + nkf, but
I have to check whether that's convenient or cumbersome...
