    x11-wm/herbstluftwm: add 0.9.3, drop 0.9.2
    This also drops the 'examples' USE flag, as the examples are to small
    to justify their own USE flag. Furthermore, app-text/asciidoc is only
    needed when building from git, as the release tarballs of herbstluftwm
    contain precompiled HTML files.
