	Its not a huge issue, but I'd like to point out its
doesn't just cause problems with the released tarballs. It
also slows down people doing a lot of heavy CVS work on those
modules. The slowdown is even more marked with a really slow

	I've no real suggestion to your problem - I understand
that its a lot better to have the docs with the code so that
