You got me - it seems to be one of those bits of "common knowledge" 
that hang around for some reason.  A bit of 'net research shows that 
opinion seems quite strong, both for and against "counting clicks".

I guess what I'm trying to say is: the content should be organized 
such that "within a few clicks" you *know* you are on the right path, 
e.g. top levels: getting started, developing, using.
Under getting started: installing, tutorials, ...
Under developing: pointers into the code base....

Under installing: installing the IDEs, installing Java, installing 
framework, etc.

I suppose a related question is cross-referencing. Some content can 
quite obviously belong on multiple help pages - so, since you don't 
want to duplicate content (I assume), then you should ensure that the 
other "likely" pages have links to the chosen content page?
