On this particular issue, I think the documentation should be included
with the build and not the site. Even more importantly for Collections
than for Lang; a Collections 2.1 downloader should not get lots of
Collections 3.0 stuff.

We don't separate documentation and site though, so I'm -0 for the
xdocs being in there and will add them in, it just changes the release

If we branch off and do a release from a branch, we have to maintain
the branch's site for the release and the trunk's site for our live
site. So our previous release strategy makes more sense under this
scenario, release from trunk and then tag at the release point.
