See you next week (provided that the travel agency manages to offer me a flight).

Same for me. :-(

This is absolutely fine.  The only reason why I would like to keep for
instance wml files away from the <CDD>-doc package is that it does not matter
to our users.  It is an issue we as developers are responsible.  We as
the developers of these packages need some tools for providing online
documentation what we are doing.  This might just confuse users.

If you want to do this, just go for it.  But I guess the hurdles for
this are a little bit higher ...
