ksh documentation should be moved out of SUNWcsr. Originally it wasn't there but somehow ended-up in SUNWcsr after the packaging changes for pkg5 landed.

Documentation goes with the same package as functionality, it is usual in IPS. The point is to move the whole ksh93 out of SUNWcsr

Actually, only man pages are co-packaged with their software, and they are delivered with an optional facet. The amount of docs that are part of ksh93 are excessive.

If the docs are to be co-delivered with ksh93 (which for better or worse is a critical system component in illumos), then its absolutely critical that they be made optional via a facet. (Note, that this bug predates our use of facets for man pages, I believe.)

What is not acceptable is that in order to have ksh93 (and hence a working illumos system) that I have to have megabytes of pointless examples and so forth.
