Groan...
... for the log: I am currently _rewriting_ the manpage subsystem from
scratch (the frontend already exists as
http://svn.genunix.org/repos/on/branches/ksh93/gisburn/scripts/shman.ksh
; I'm now waiting for the "ksh93-integration update1" to land before
doing the remaining work). IMO it may be nice to syncronize the work a
bit...

Some notes:
- IMO it may be nice to have something like /etc/man/mandirs which keeps
track of directories which contain man directories and a tool ("manadm"
?) which adds/removes entries to that list and invokes the crawling
process for all subdirs listed there.

Bye,
