A place in the website seems best. But it needs to be arranged carefully
as one of my goals is to make documentation for all releases available.
To be able to handle that they need to be organized by version and
library. There's already a doc section, so here's the layout:

(or any other prebuilt docs, not just pdf)

Note, this would be only an internal arrangement. We can arrange the
links to show up elsewhere as needed. In particular they can show up as
a link to /doc/libs/<version>/doc/whatever.pdf.
