Under which circumstances the timepstamp of debian/gabedit.1 will be
older than the one of gabedit.1.xml?

I don't want to drop the advantages of the current system just for a few
cases, I never observed. The second alternative you suggested in your
first mail is exactly, what's done atm without the advantage, that
debian/gabedit.1 does not need to be re-created every time. So this is
definitely not a a considerable suggestion.

Re-considering your first suggestion again still makes me think, that
the advantage of never-ever having an outdated manpage beats the
disadvantage, that the manpage might be re-created under a (very) few
circumstances. I checked svn check-outs, svn-buildpackage builds and
apt-get source ... && debuild builds. The manpage was not re-created.
