This is something bass wrote that grabs html manuals from
http://htmlhelp.berlios.de (which doesn't exist anymore - it moved to
http://code.google.com/p/htmlhelp/). I don't really see the usefulness of it
since almost all of the content is just html versions of standard info/man
pages. Anyways, it's completely broken as-is.

Okay, I suppose people do use it. I'd like to start an app-doc herd (I think
vapier and me have half of app-doc/* covered anyways). This would fit in
there. In the meantime I'll take it.

Any news on this herd creation? Looks like that package is still in
maintainer-needed domain, for now I have fixed all his bugs I think, but
better create that one for this and other packages that could benefit
from active maintainers :)

Thanks
