Do all Arch users *really* need detailed API docs of various system libraries? Considering how maybe, what, .001%% will ever dabble in low-level X11 C? And how that space is not insignificant on constrained systems -- which grow in frequency with the introduction of nettops and the like?

Additional info:

* package version(s)

* config and/or log files etc.
~$ du -sh /usr/share/doc/libxcb/
27M /usr/share/doc/libxcb/

This task depends upon

keeping docs is default now, but large and unneeded docs are still removed,
so I'm sure this was just overlooked, no need to overreact here ;)
