      What do you have in mind ?

      If you just put all the text in a giant monospace verbatim, it
      won't be much better (or worse) that the output of vimpspp. Page
      breaks and page numbering may be easier, though.

      If you intend to reflow the text, there is much to gain. But
      then you need to know what is, in HTML parlance, <pre>, what is
      <code> and what is neither. Dunno how easy/hard that is.

      In any case, it's essential that the process be as automated as
      possible. EG, program reads /usr/share/vim/vim*/doc/ and spits
      out {man,ref}.ps. Otherwise, the files will always lag behind.
