OK, I implemented something like this. The generated docs link is on
the getting_started page with the other CVS info. Should appear at
within the hour. Note that the home page has "Libraries" and
"Documentation" links that point to the same place. I just thought
some people would be more comfortable if there were a link called
"Documentation" on the home page.
