I haven't been arguing that doc/html is good, that's why you haven't seen
an argument from me.  I've been trying to figure out what's so bad about
it, and what's so good about just using doc.  Your case is that the
documentation is hard to find.  The "find" command should work pretty well
for that.  I'm not going to complain if doc/html is merged with doc.  But I
haven't heard a compelling reason to do it.
