[Pkg-ace-devel] Bug#562164: libtao-doc: newest version of package is enormous

In version 5.6.3-6, libtao-doc grew by a factor of >50, to 519MB.
libace-doc got quite a bit bigger too. Isn't this a bit excessive? I
imagine lots of this is autogenerated, but 29 times bigger than the
upstream tarball seems a bit much.
I started rebuilding my local Debian mirror last night, and it seems to
have taken most of the night just downloading libtao-doc; given the
former size of the package and the fact that there's no indication of a
change of this magnitude in the changelog, it looks as though it may be
a mistake. Packages this big tend not to be very useful anyway because
many people will just uninstall them rather than having to upgrade them.
