Well hopefully we can improve this too, but good work anyway finding out how
to do this.

Wel docs indeed do not reside in RAM, but a lot of people have systems running
from internal flash, which is not inexpensive and available in really big
sizes. If you need to get something in 64MB of flash, you really will like the
fact that you do not need to install 10Mb of docs or extra dependencies needed
to show those docs.
