Note that I'm happy to enhance the current build process to take
advantage of build materials that any other documentation needs (be 
they something like sphinx, something more advanced like TeX, etc.). I'm
not trying to argue that OpenGeo should or shouldn't do something, but
the technical requirements for build stuff shuld hopefully not prevent
us from storing documentation in OL SVN.

I'm somewhat concerned about having documentation all over the web --
it's one of the things I hope to improve with this setup. It makes it
difficult to solve the "I want to have a local copy of OL documentatin
for my trip through the bush in south africa" problem. Maybe an SVN
external helps fix that; is the OL Workshop SVN in a stable location
that we culd toss an external into?
