Not only is that unrelated to the current snafu, but I
disagree with the sentiment.  Breaking the docco out
has resulted in an order of magnitude improvement in
the quality.

There are (at least) two reasons for having the docco in
a separate tree: one is for separation of authority (so
docco people won't/can't bork the source), and the other
is mail traffic.  With our current CVS scripts, moving
the docco back into the source module would require that
a) all docco people have full access to the source, and
b) all docco people AND all developers would have to endure
mail dealing with anything in the tree.

I have a set of improved scripts to handle the mail issue
(though Roy doesn't want them), but not for the separation
of authority one -- access control is still at the module
