> Although Frederic might have an easy solution. pages are uploaded from documentation in tarballs,
with some minor transformations, I believe. So we should be able to just
point people to the tarball (though they will get the source code too,
and they won't get all of the documentation in one tarball).

Some tarballs might build their HTML as part of their from-tarball
build. But I think the HTML should always be distributed to reduce the
need for all the documenation generation tools.
