compared how often i reinstall a workstation (never) and how often
i need a manpage because "command --help" don't answer the question
that is unlikely
how many manpages do you have installed and how many of them
you ever viewed in the past let say 5 years?
escpecially because the goal is to seperate things which does *not*
mean they are not installed in most setups - a meta-package "postfix"
can pull "postfix-server" and "postfix-manuals" while you can remove
the metapackage and "postfix-manuals"
