Well, i personally like very much to have all (well a lot of) my
documentation accessible, and searchable by dwww. For this I would want
the html to be already generated, and I'm probably not the only
one. Why not just create a -doc package that contain the tree of them,
or may be only pdf and html (but there will be people to disagree with
me on this).
