Hmmm, we could certainly support a "path" of directories
for gtkdoc-fixref. The interesting question is what you
do then for relative paths versus absolute paths. The
nice thing currently is that inter-module links are
relative so that the document is transportable.

I suppose what you could do then is make the links
relative within one path component and absolute between
path components.
