I've just done my first fresh checkout since this change was made, and 
noticed how big the 'docs' directory is!

Paul-Russells-Computer:~/Software/Apache paulr$ du -hs jackrabbit/ 
  52M    jackrabbit/
  44M    jackrabbit/docs/

So the /automatically generated/ docs directory makes up nearly 85% of 
the checked out repository. While I totally understand why the site 
itself needs to be versioned, I can't help but think a 650% increase in 
module size is going to represent a significant overhead for most 
people! I know this is a pain, but is it complicated to move these docs 
into a separate module somewhere? If I can help with this, please let 
me know!
