Basically, it would be nice if the document directory is categorized
based on language and file types. For example, at the top level would be 
like "doc.en", "doc.ca", "doc.cs", "doc.ja", "doc.zh-hk", "doc.zh-tw", etc.
Then, there will be "file types" directories like "html", "pdf", "XML", 

As I have written before, I am interested to make html tarballs of
one type of language only (english html). See also:

It would be simpler to extract, if they are categorized as suggested above.
Sure, I can (and currently use) filters. But to filter Chinese, I currently
have to filter:
   *.zh-cn.html, *.zh-cn.info, *.zh-cn.txt,  
   *-zh-cn.html, *-zh-cn.info, *-zh-cn.txt,  
   *.zh-hk.html, *.zh-hk.info, *.zh-hk.txt,
   *-zh-hk.html, *-zh-hk.info, *-zh-hk.txt,
   *.zh-tw.html, *.zh-tw.info, *.zh-tw.txt,
   *-zh-tw.html, *-zh-tw.info, *-zh-tw.txt,
   *.zh_TW.html, *.zh_TW.info, *.zh_TW.txt,
   *-zh_TW.html, *-zh_TW.info, *-zh_TW.txt,
   *.zh_tw.html, *.zh_tw.info, *.zh_tw.txt,
   *-zh_tw.html, *-zh_tw.info, *-zh_tw.txt,

But, they are sometimes less upto date :^).
