Huh? Imo, there shouldn't even _be_ a man page for apt. It's not a command
(well, on my system it actually _is_ but it's some kind of alias for
javac). apt is a "concept", tying together a whole slew of packages.
So I agree that the man page is useless, but in this case I think it
_should_ be ignored (and removed).
