Hmm.  It *does* appear to handle .html.gz; I hadn't thought that had been 
added yet.  My apologies.

The other problem with this still stands, however; links don't work 
because it doesn't look for .html.gz if it can't find .html.

Yeah, I figured Apache was capable.  I *think* you can get WN to do 
something like that, too.  Not sure about the others.

Doh.  Shows you where my mind has been for the past week...

Yeah.  Alternatively: we could hack dwww to insert references to the 
.html.gz if you ask for the .html.  This would nip everything neatly in 
the bud (except for having the server in the first place).  OTOH, it 
might require some substantial tweaking avoid touching the /usr/doc/ 
directories.
