  I think this is asking for trouble.

  -- The recent jakarta/ stuff is now 'only distributon'.
     On it's completely useless without further guidance.
     The filenames simply don't tell enough.

  -- Having two (ftp/www) versions requires organisation,
     and that is the main thing lacking.

  I would be in favour of a basic framework of directories
  with distributable stuff, where each directory contains
  a html page telling what is what.

  Maybe, maybe you could do something like 
    lynx -dump index.html > README

  out of courtesy to the ftp-only users.
  The first priority, however, should be the web sites.
