  fair enough, but should i submit a bug report for what seems to be a
(minor) bug in the ubuntu packaging?  running "publican --help"
clearly suggests that "publican --man" is a valid invocation, but if
you run that latter command, what you get is (weirdly) a listing of
the /usr/bin/publican script, followed by:

  You need to install the perl-doc package to use this program.

installing perl-doc fixes the issue, so shouldn't the ubuntu publican
package have perl-doc as a required dependency?  (sorry, i realize
that this is more a ubuntu issue than a publican issue.)
