Some other upstream person (can't remember who, maybe even a couple)
recommended not shipping them; I guess that if you ask for its
inclusion, nobody else will complain, though? If so, we can change the
package to include them. (BTW there is no "docs package".)

The old distro here being dapper, I suppose -- which doesn't have
python-central, so it fails to build from the same source without
modifications. And one those modifications are made, the stricter
build-dependencies *do not apply*.
Do you have a real use case for having dropped the version constratios
doing any damage?
