Okay, I understand your problem now.  Although I don't have a perfect
answer.  Canonical link would be{doc_module}/latest/{whatever}

Current directory layout is the only one making sense if we want to
maintain several versions in; however we could
probably devise a few mod_rewrite rules to expose other URI schemes,
such as{doc_module}/{whatever}.
