While -docs looks nicer and sounds shorter (and I'm also +1 for it),
the -documentation name explicitly defines that this is exactly the
documentation, not couchdb internal app called docs or has such prefix
by some accident. Also, such loooong name is very hard to miss in
complete repository list(: Anyway, I see nothing criminal in full name
and what is done that is done.
