For those who might not know, the decision to put all of the old docs
into a single package was made for primarily one reason: There was
discussion last year about converting the docs from the various old
formats to a modern format.  Then, as each doc is converted, it could be
moved out of the docs package and put into a more appropriate package.
I'm not sure if/when that will happen, so if people would like to go
ahead and spread the old format docs out to the appropriate packages now
and then convert them to a modern format later, that's okay by me.  I
just don't want to desire to convert the docs to a modern format to be
lost in the shuffle here.
