Sweet. I love the smell of progress!

What is included in 'everything'? The hunks version of the docs are
very particular about file and dir names.

Since the docs are currently generated staright from CVS, I put CVS in
the filenames. When we publish a stable tarball I wanted to pull the
tagged docs and provide downloadable doc files seperate from the source
tarball just in case a person just wanted a set of stable docs. I was
not anticipating the need to have stable versions available on the
website for view. The latest and greatest should be pretty good there I
would think. If this is not to everyone's liking, then by all means
change things around. Putting docs into a stable spot was going to be a
manual process anyways IMO.
