As with all things Commons, a little comparative shopping always
works best ;)

Have a look at the [beanutils] site, which maintains docs for two
versions simultaneously, or [math] or [dbcp], which like most other
commons sites maintains prior version javadocs on the site.  What we
usually do for the javadoc is just manually push the files to p.a.o
and link them.  Same could work for user guide type material.  Just
create an "old" version, tar it, scp it to p.a.o, unpack somewhere
and adjust links.  Alternatively, you can spend n hours trying to
figure out how to cajole maven into creating a site that includes
all of the content.  I strongly recommend the first route.  Maybe
Niall can chime in with comments on how he did the [beanutils] stuff.
