I like `doc', but if there's a particular convention that other GNU
programs follow, we should use that.
I don't think we should put it at the top level. Remember that I am
biased differently from some other people: rather than aggregating the
world into one giant ball, I want to put interfaces in place so that
the components can be worked on separately.
Therefore, I think the manuals should stay with their respective
components. But, if the GCC manual wants to go looking for the V3
manual and include it -- if it is present -- that is good.
Physically, though, I think the documentation for various packages
should live with the packages themselves.
