I t was a quick hack to ge the docs fixed for the release. I'm not sure 
if you were around at the time but David and Ferdinand had to pull an 
all night Europe/Australis session to make the docs even remotely work.

I can't remember exactly how it was done (I did the plugin docs 
generation according to their need as a result of the all nighter). I'll 
try and have a look ASAP, but can't do so now.

If you see a better way please suggest it here and we'll let you know if 
it will work.

(HINT solutions with the locationmap were *not* considered since it was 
still in a branch at that stage - one of the main drivers for the 
locationmap was to prevent the need for reserved URI's)
