Deal!  Added.

I would say that it's only useful if it applies to packages that mostly
consist of manpage collections: otherwise, by debian policy each and
every single role::program package should also be made-of::data:man
because they're mandated to contain manpages.

(...which suggests me a new autotag euristic: if it has files in /bin or
 /usr/bin, it's likely to be role::program, but this is another topic...)
