OK, it was the Debian maintainer, and I'm not sure exactly what he meant: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=622918 I think it should be simple to convert the text to a man page once it's in plain text format, and plan to write a shell script to do that for my own use shortly; I could provide the script to others, though I'm not sure about distributing the output myself.
