FWIW, the documentation shipped in the tarball would greatly benefit 
from not using typemaps and content negotiation. The current format is 
a PITA to view directly with a browser. And if you have a problem that 
makes httpd fail to start, you are out of luck. Unless you can access 
the copy on - but why then ship the docs in the 
tarball in the first place?

In Debian, we already ship the docs in a standalone format (converted 
with a perl search and replace script). But having some XSLT magic 
that does the right thing would be much nicer.
