I plan to work on the "doc-base" package this weekend. So if you don't
have anything better to do the next days :-) I'd appreciate your help on

Note, that there are several design issues which are not yet resolved (for
example, location of files, etc.) but I plan to do more experimenting on
that stuff before discussed the different options here.

So just drop me a note if you want to help. We should try to avoid doing
the work twice.
