You might want to clarify in the project page that this Perl program has nothing to do with the other man2html, which is a CGI utility written in C, packaged in the man page utils.

See here: http://primates.ximian.com/~flucifredi/man/man-1.6g.tar.gz

This is also an old program which was previously known as vh-man2html.

I think, numerous GNU/Linux distros have this C program.

Maybe one of these two should change its name?
