"The Guide" is R.I.P., that's why I suggested to 
s|docs/1.0/guide|docs/1.0/user| parallel with 2.0 docs. And gradually 
clean up the docs not to refer to the guide.

of course not, it was completely included in the faqs section, now we 
are in the process of removing it. Eventually the src/docs/1.0 will be 
checked out into mod_perl-1.x, similar to what we have now in 2.0. Oh 
and both versions will checkout docs/general

Say, should I s|general|common| ?

Anyway, the guide and all the standalone faqs have lived their lives 
well and now it's time to put them to rest. The new unified 
documentation structure comes to replace them all.

I guess it's fine if we continue to refer to the whole documentation as 
a Guide. In fact I like the idea, since it helps to have a nice name for 
the docs.

The king is dead, welcome the new king.

what do you think? we could even rename s|src/docs|src/guide|
