We don't want to serve the original XML files.  httpd-2.0's docs have 
valid XSLTs which mean that they can be rendered with modern web 
browsers.  httpd-site's content doesn't have a XSLT.  Therefore, if 
we exposed the raw XML files to a web browser, they wouldn't make any 
sense to anyone.

The eventual goal is not to have a docs directory in CVS at all, but 
we can't do that given our current infrastructure.  Therefore, all of 
the content must be generated statically and checked into the 
repository.  Hence, docs/ is only valid for transformations.  --
