--- Comment #1 from Brooks Davis <brooks at FreeBSD.org> ---
Given that we're switching to mandoc for manpage rendering, I'd definitely
argue that catman pages shouldn't exist any more.  It's fast and light and
you're probably better off reading compressed mandoc and rendering it even on
very slow systems since such systems usually have slow storage.
