That's exactly the point

IMHO, it's just one more useless file in upstream's tarball.

While working today on Wt again, I've noticed if I were to repackage
the upstream tarball to remove jquery.min.js, I would also remove the
Doxygen-generated HTML apidox. After all, I'm also regenerating them,
therefore to me it's just a few thousands of useless files in
upstream's tarball. But what's FTP masters stance on this?
