I agree. The additional overhead of release-tracking them, introducing
a delta, etc. is too much for a simple typo bug which doesn't render
the manpage incomprehensible.

the other side, a missing dependency which causes a program to fail
to start is something which we would want to milestone, if nobody gets
around to JFDI it.
