Re: Sub-categorizing the /usr/doc directory.

Yes, I thought about it too.  But it was so easy to just type
less /usr/doc/isdn^I to get to
     /usr/doc/isdnutils ... 

If we reorgenize it, I'll have to remember the ``slot'' (whatever it
is) the package is in :-(

1)	We could use these ``slots'' and add an additional dir, just
    like /usr/doc/All and have symlinks to or from it.

2)  We could create an alphabetical hierarchy, like
    /usr/doc/a/
	/usr/doc/b/
	/usr/doc/c/
	...
