I explained how this should work some time ago and no-one said a
thing. The cvs repository should not be impacted upon by what you want
to do with the sources. There should be *one* docs directory with all
the docs in it just like for src. Getting old releases out isn't a
problem at all since they'd be tagged at release time and it's a one
off process to install that releases docs into the web area.

Can people comment on this quickly so I can clean things up in cvs.
