All the manpages are generated with pandoc.  Can you send a patch
for the Markdown files in Documentation/*.1.txt instead?  Thanks
in advance.

I generate manpages using pandoc 1.5.1.1-5+b1 from Debian stable
using: make -C Documentation

However, I think distributing your patch as-is with the Debian source
package is fine to avoid an extra Build-Depends on pandoc+haskell until
the next unicorn release.
