Partially right: the 1.3 docs weren't separate at one point, so they have 
overlapping branch info with the 1.3 code.  Furthermore, the 2.0 docs were 
*copied* from the RCS files.  (The httpd-2.0 code repository was a clean 
import rather than a copy.)  So, the 2.0 docs had the same branch info for 
everything up until the 1.3/2.0 branch point.  Hence, you can't import both 
of them cleanly.

About every single mistake possible with copying in CVS is illustrated in 
the httpd-docs-1.3 module.  Sigh.

Doable, but it's a significant amount of effort.  The two easiest solutions 
would be: 1) abandon the docs entirely (see Rich's post), or 2) ditch the 
history (they will be available with CVS) and just import the latest docs 
into the 1.3 branch.  -- justin
