maria (core) would be architecture dependant, while the doc is of course
not. This, and the fact that the size of the doc is a significant
portion of the total size, is the reason to split.
Besides, I guess that any user of maria will need access to the doc,
be it online or on a paper. However, he could also downlad a PDF
version from the maria web site (University of Helsinki).
