I'm happy to see the proposed replacement and then make the choice
about the switch.    I wouldn't be terribly keen on options that
increase my manual effort either though.   Manually reconciling doc
changes with another package is a bit of a pain.   Having it happen
automatically (via for example gnulib-tool) seems preferable to me.
