I also think it's a good idea. I was thinking something similar myself.
Except I don't think your naming convention works. If /docs is an alias
for /docs/1.3, then /docs/1.4 would expand to /docs/1.3/1.4. I think we
would have to either use a different folder structure (like
/docs_static/1.3) or put a redirect page at /docs/index.html (perhaps
something along the lines of http://www.postgresql.org/docs/).
I'm not aware of any hidden build-results file. Though that would be a
good thing to have.
