But is it interesting to ship for the real case, or should it be in
a separate package? For example, I'm not sure that
/usr/share/doc/ghostscript-8.61/Humor.htm is really relevant in all cases.
Another argument in relation to docs and languages is that a lot of the
documentation we ship is only available in a handful of languages anyway
(in practice, only English), so it will not really help the people for
whose benefit we include all those languages anyway...
