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.
