To avoid getting held up with this package, I suggest the following course
of action.  If gtypist can use the help2man perl script that's already
included in a few source packages, why not package that until the
standalone help2man package becomes available?  Once that gets approved,
you can release a new subversion of gtypist that doesn't include the
help2man script...

Of course, if gtypist requires a more sophisticated version of help2man,
please disregard the above.
