Heh. It's fun to watch how arguments and prerequisites are shifted
around to fit the needs of whoever is just arguing. Fact is, NetBSD
obviously installs a *few* HTML files where there's no other authorative
source (or none comparable in detail). And then it, in my opinion
unnecessarily, chooses to install *many* HTML files that are generated
from another authorative source, a format that has a base-builtin viewer

It's these few and many the links suggestion came for (read the initial
mail again). Not the few.

I (as non-developer but simple user here) have no say in this, but
you (as in developers) should try to at least keep your arguments
(intra- and inter-thread) logically coherent...
