I saw need to change it because some of if just wasn't the way I
remembered it last time and some of it seemed to make more sense.
So I risked making mistakes and discussing the stuff afterwards.

I figured that we can always go back to previous versions.
And I didn't think it was fine-tuned so well. That's what got me
started in the first place. For example there was no provision in the
old docs to build windows and unix-versions on two different systems
(or rather exchange the rc-checkout for that).

And, as you noted before, creation of docs was still an open issue.

Sorry for doing this at a bad time but I wanted this fixed before we
started the next release.

Will look at your changes and comment later today, gotto run.
