The problem is that pod is not good enough, texinfo can't
generate manual pages. Let's sort the important points:
- i'm not going to duplicate information. It's bad
enough that code, --help output and documentation can
get out of sync, anything more is just not acceptable.
- any system i work on shall have all needed tools
installed by default.
- i want manual pages. They don't have to be perfect.
- i want reasonable html output (this rules out pod).
- i also like printed manuals.
I feel a temptation to write the documentation in texinfo
use a slightly modified man2html for the manual pages, but
that's still not good enough.
It seems that i'm never satisfied with whatever solution i
for manuals. I started with ASCII text, then i used texinfo,
tried a number of other documentation systems, went back
to texinfo (using a number of wrappers around it, it didn't
like umlauts back then), tried html, tried a number of html
wrappers, want back to nroff / man, and finally i tried pod.
Not a single solution lasted for more than a year.

peoples projects, especially since i don't see any chance to
finish my own stuff. I'm also tired of getting spam
