+1 - I tend to agree with the site == head approach that we have
pretty much always taken.  I like the Tomcat approach of making
versioned site content available for past releases, but that is a
pain to maintain and I am loathe to ask more from Commons RMs atm or
to clutter svn with ever more little maven-generated files.  For
most Commons components, there is not much beyond the javadoc
anyway, which in most cases is already published for old releases.
