Fails to build from source, because of this lovely line in en/fixsvg:

 test -d hello || hg clone http://hg.serpentine.com/tutorial/hello

Yagh.  Here's a start to packaging that works around that.

I'm not sure where /tmp/REV7.my-new-hello and friends are supposed
to come from.

Caveats:

 - Build-depends-indep line is nonsense;
 - no installation rules yet;
 - clean rule is not thorough;
 - resulting documentation should be changed to use relative
   paths instead of invalid absolute ones;
 - some of the examples have been made silly due to the workaround
   for lack of network access;
 - no translations yet.

Still, maybe this can save someone some time?
