Hi there,

I saw at 
that Mdv did switch from the old flat text based man pages to the 
berkley db based man-db.
According to http://nongnu.org/man-db/ several larger distros did switch 
some time ago as well.
So what do you think, should we follow them as well? I have yet to 
really look into it, but I wanted to ask for opinions first, so I won't 
be spending my time on nothing.
